Caption: Drawings of Jupiter, by the British clergyman and astronomer Thomas William Webb (1807-1885). These eight drawings are part of a series and are numbered from 21 to 28. Details shown include cloud bands and the Great Red Spot (diagram 28). Early observations of Jupiter with telescopes began with Galileo's discovery of its moons in 1610. More detailed observations were made over the following centuries as telescope design improved. In the 20th and 21st centuries, detailed photographs of Jupiter have been obtained by space probes.
