How Jove sat on his own dipoles, and how we can see the shocking results.

Gary Palmer

Jupiter has an unusual magnetic field that is flattened, energetic, and turbulent. Io gives it a big chemo-ionic boost. Flux tubes inject hot gases into the magnetosphere and burp cold dense gases out the tailpipe. Footprints of the Galilean moons appear in the aurora light show. Jupiter acts like a weak, petulant pulsar.
