Meier Corroboration #193 – Jupiter Ring

July 17th, 1975

Billy: Although, it wasn’t such a huge experience as in the storm zone of the red eye on Jupiter. But just regarding this prevented sun, I have another question: you told me that the ring or the very thin ring system around Jupiter disappears; therefore, it can no longer be ascertained. There, I ask myself what you actually meant with that, namely whether you addressed the outer or the inner ring.

Quetzal: 10. I spoke of the outer and extremely fine ring. 11. The inner ring which is denser, in contrast to the outer one, is narrow and practically extends down to Jupiter’s atmosphere in a fine and visible vapor.
12. This ring remains and will also be ascertained in the coming time through the efforts of earthly astronomers and astrophysicists.

Billy: Then those who are super clever will still have to vindicate me, whom they insulted as a liar and spinner in 1975 after my great journey, when I explained that I had seen a similar ring on Jupiter as the one on Saturn.

Quetzal: 13. For this vindication, however, you will still have to wait an even longer time.

The Voyager spacecraft has discovered a ring around Jupiter, a finding that had eluded the largest telescopes on Earth.

“We have discovered a thin, flat ring of particles surrounding Jupiter,” the University of Arizona’s Dr. Bradford Smith said today at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, from which the historic flight to Jupiter has been directed. “Jupiter now joins Saturn and Uranus as planets with rings and leaves Neptune as the only one of the giant outer planets without a known ring.”

What is believed to be a single ring circling Jupiter was found last Sunday inside the orbit of Amalthea, the smallest and innermost of Jupiter’s 13 known moons.

Smith said scientists do not know the composition of the ring but believe it is no thicker than 20 miles. The ring circles Jupiter’s equator 35,000 miles from the planet’s could tops.

,,,The discovery of a ring around Jupiter was made with more than a little luck, even though the photographs taken Sunday in a search for a ring had been planed for several years.

Billy: So the Sun, with its radiation, still has a quite requisite strength even at this great distance. Neptune is, indeed, about 30 times as far from the Sun as the Earth. Also, its equatorial diameter is about 4 times larger than the Earth’s, so about 50,000 kilometers, and its mass is about 16 or 17 times that of the Earth. To my knowledge, it rotates on its own axis approximately every 16 hours. But still to the planet Neptune itself: I admired the large dark spot of a gigantic cyclone or even several of these, as this is likewise the case with Saturn. I also found the ring system of Neptune to be magnificent. My question, now, is whether you can tell me how big the cyclone-storm zone on Neptune is?

Quetzal: 21. The Earth would just fit into the zone.

Billy: So the diameter is more than 12,000 kilometers.

Quetzal: 22. That is correct.
