Welcome to Jupiter: NASA spacecraft reaches giant planet

Braving intense radiation, a NASA spacecraft reached Jupiter on Monday after a five-year voyage to begin exploring the king of the planets. Ground controllers at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Lockheed Martin erupted in applause when the solar-powered Juno spacecraft beamed home news that it was circling Jupiter's poles.

Scattered storms expected for Tuesday

Scattered storms are ongoing across the Valley this morning, and will continue tracking west to east. Occasional rain can be expected through the day. We’ll see more clouds than sun and today will feature the highest rain chance we see for the rest of the work week.
