    So if Earth was once near Jupiter when the GRS appeared... ⚡️🌎⚡️? 🤔

      @Trevor Sneath Indeed that was a theory of his. Interesting mythologies about it as well such as this source:
      “Divine birth: Athena, born from her father’s head
      Athena (Minerva), the goddess of war and wisdom, had a strange birth. Her father Zeus (Jupiter) had swallowed his pregnant consort Metis (“wisdom”), because he was afraid she would bear a son who would overthrow him. Then he developed a severe headache that nothing would cure. So Hephestos, god of fire and blacksmiths, took an axe and split open Zeus’ head (an approach not recommended for the milder forms of headache or migraine).
      Out sprang Athena, fully grown, a beautiful young woman in full armor and carrying a spear, announcing her arrival with a loud war cry. The manner of her birth allegorically defines her basic nature. Having arisen from the head of a god, she is wise. Being born from a male and not from a female, she maintains a special bond of affection with her father, protects male heroes, and champions male causes. She is a powerful goddess of war and has remained a virgin.

    Io, the closer of the two, orbits Jupiter twice for every time Europa orbits. So this is not a capture of the two passing the red spot, but can only be mostly an illusion due to the motion of Cassini. Could well be CGI. According to a 2019 "science alert" article, the video it is indeed a GIF, from photos, not from a real video.
    P.S. I tried to post 3 times with a link, but got deleted.

    Trying to read the Chinese whispers chiselled into stone about Jupiters role in past is harder than Saturn old Sun's longer role , Jupiters/ a former Sun elsewhere perhaps . . flung into proximity with us & Sol (Pleiades push ?) influence appears relative fleeting in past sky & very interesting

    It's shocking how Birkeland currents fling us old parents about upstairs Willy Nilly . . it's amazing someone does't get hurt
