During a live webcast on Monday, Dec. 11, scientists from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory will discuss how two spacecraft are studying the planet Jupiter and how you can observe Jupiter in the night sky this month.

The two-hour Internet event from JPL in Pasadena, Calif., will begin at 8:30 a.m. PST (11:30 a.m. on the East Coast) at the Internet address:

Dr. Linda Spilker, deputy project scientist for the Cassini mission, and Dr. Duane Bindschadler, science operations manager for the Galileo mission, will describe how those two NASA missions are examining Jupiter, its moons and the huge field of magnetic force that surrounds the planet. Dr. Scott Bolton, a JPL physicist, will explain how Earth-based telescopes, including some remotely controlled by middle school and high school students, are being used to aid the spacecraft studies. Steve Edberg, an atmosphere scientist and outreach manager for Cassini, will provide tips for observing Jupiter, Saturn and other attractions in December's night sky. Charles White, system engineer for the JPL Design Hub, will host the show.
