Jovian Trojans. Computer illustration of the Jovian Trojans (asteroids) in orbit with Jupiter (upper right). The Jovian Trojans are asteroids that lap the sun in the same orbit as Jupiter. New evidence acquired by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Explorer (WISE) shows that they are uniformly dark with a hint of burgundy colour and have matte surfaces that reflect little sunlight.
