    Default The Sounds of Jupiter



    Listen to the sounds of Jupiter. Fascinating and really eerie. It sounds even better with headphones.

    When I was a kid, my dad fashioned some type of antenna and connected it to a portable shortwave radio. As he pointed the antenna to the sun, it made pops and hisses. Same with Jupiter. It was so long ago I don't remember the specifics. Radio Astronomy is readily practiced by many amateurs, and realatively cheaply. Somewhere on the net, I read about some guy who ran copper wiring (?) along poles all throughout his backyard forming a rather large radio telescope. Neat stuff.

    I want to eventually, possibly as a college project, build a radio telescope. Just need to start researching some more. I though maybe I could use some old satellite dishes on my house that are not being used. But they really are to small to collect anything. The older satellite dishes have a larger surface to collect more, I hope I can get my hands on one of those in the future. There’s one in the neighbors yard, but I don’t know if its in use, or if anyone lives there right now. Just a thought for the future right now.

    Default For sounds of the Planets,

    I like the seven movement symphonic work "The Planets", by Gustav Holtz!

    When the work was first performed in 1918, Pluto had not yet been discovered (1930), and now it has been blackballed anyway.

    Here's to Mustang Sally for her interesting post!

    I think those eerie sounds were caused by storms in the Great Red Spot modulating the faint background RF radiation from the planet. The instruments in the Voyager detected the signal and demodulated the audio from the composite signal with the result in the linked file.

    Yes very interesting, not something I would want to hear all alone deep in space. Very cool to hear sound from another planet though.

    I love the sound of the Northern Lights, truly amazing and the moment that really got me interested in Astronomy in general.

    MustangSally, Great post. I use to play with a Heath Kit shortwave my dad built, and you could get sounds like that all the time but when we have a lot of activty in space it would get very loud and very spookie .My Dad is Ret Navy officer and I remember him saying some of the stuff is reflection from us but the rest was the planets themselfs, the Navy goes into get detail about sound from everything....
    Enjoy the Black cause they can't take it back............
