Thank you for supporting this wiki project
It's very impressive seen a Jupiter's satellite (Io in this case) casting a shadow against the planet surface.

This picture was recorded on 28th August 1999 by Christian Viladrich at 1h 25m UT. It is made of 4 single exposures of 0.29 seconds each one through an 8 inches Quantum Maksutov and a Hi-SIS 22 (KAF-400).

I have enjoyed the comanpy of lovely ladies in Germany and Amsterdam. Some of my fondest memories are of nights spent with skilled and patient lovers. If in an environment that is safe for both partners, one can freely experience moments that will live forever in your heart. How is that a bad thing?

I thought they did have a model prdnictieg the motion of the planets with the Earth at the center of it all. If I remember correctly, the retrograde motion was thought of as being caused by the planets moving in little circles around the Earth. I can't remember though, did the heliocentric model make better predictions or was it favored more for its simplicity?Anyway, that was a great teaching moment. It seems to stick better when they ask the questions.

QuotesChimp'll finish our discussion of auto insurance in the next chapter, where we cover the reforms we believe are necessary in the auto insurance industry itself and within each state's regu´┐Żlatory process if rates are to be permanently stabilized.

Short answer is no.That's a very long bow to draw; Jupiter's grtivay would have to change by an enormous amount to come even remotely close to the scenario you suggest.The object that caused this dark spot on Jupiter was probably only about 1 km in diameter. Now if such an object were to strike the Earth, that would cause some significant changes in climate.

You are probably right. If the mass of Jupiter cnhaged appreciably the orbits of the other planets in our solar system could be affected (including earth's). Of course you'd need to smack Jupiter with something huge to change it's mass appreciably, and the only things I could think off would be another planet. This is all highly unlikely so I wouldn't count on it being a source of climate change here on earth.
