Amateur – professional collaborations in Giant Planets Atmospheres Research through the Planetary Virtual Observatory of the International Outer Planets Watch ( PVOL-IOPW )
The atmospheres node of the International Outer Planets Watch (IOPW) maintains a large database of observations of the Giant Planets called Planetary Virtual Observatory Laboratory (PVOL) [1]. This
Probing clouds in planets with a simple radiative transfer model: the Jupiter case
Remote sensing of planets evokes using expensive on-orbit satellites and gathering complex data from space. However, the basic properties of clouds in planetary atmospheres can be successfully
Detectability of possible space weather effects on Mars upper atmosphere and meteor impacts in Jupiter and Saturn with small telescopes
Amateur astronomers operating small telescopes accumulate a larger amount of observational time of Solar System planets than the ensemble of professional telescopes. Over the last 15 years,
Cassini Exploration of the Planet Saturn: A Comprehensive Review
TLDR
Key discoveries and events include watching the eruption of a planet-encircling storm, detection of gravity perturbations from winds 9000 km below the tops of the clouds, demonstration that eddies are supplying energy to the zonal jets, which are remarkably steady over the 25-year interval since the Voyager encounters.
Small impacts on the giant planet Jupiter
Context. Video observations of Jupiter obtained by amateur astronomers over the past 8 years have shown five flashes of light with durations of 1–2 s, each observed by at least two observers that
First Earth-based Detection of a Superbolide on Jupiter
Cosmic collisions on planets cause detectable optical flashes that range from terrestrial shooting stars to bright fireballs. On 2010 June 3 a bolide in Jupiter's atmosphere was simultaneously
Extra-Terrestrial Meteors
All planets and satellites of our solar system are subject to a continuous rain of material, ranging in size from specks of dust to objects the size of boulders. Upon impact, these objects deposit
Constraints from Comets on the Formation and Volatile Acquisition of the Planets and Satellites
TLDR
How knowledge of comet composition up to the time of the Rosetta mission has contributed to understanding the formation processes of the giant planets, their moons and small icy bodies in the solar system is reviewed.
Digital daylight observations of the planets with small telescopes
Planetary atmospheres are extremely dynamic, showing a variety of phenomena at different spatial and temporal scales, therefore continuous monitoring is required. Amateur astronomers have provided

The Little Red Spot (LRS) in Jupiter's atmosphere was investigated in unprecedented detail by the New Horizons spacecraft together with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and the Very Large Telescope
The Impact of a Large Object on Jupiter in 2009 July
On 2009 July 19, we observed a single, large impact on Jupiter at a planetocentric latitude of 55°S. This and the Shoemaker-Levy 9 (SL9) impacts on Jupiter in 1994 are the only planetary-scale

Part I. Observing Jupiter: 1. Observations from Earth 2. Observations from spacecraft Part II. The Visible Structure of the Atmosphere: 3. Horizontal structure: belts, currents, spots and storms 4.
Ground-Based Observational Support for Spacecraft Exploration of the Outer Planets
TLDR
The Juno mission to Jupiter in the next decade, a flagship-class mission to the Jupiter or to the Saturn systems currently under consideration, and possible intermediate-class missions which might be proposed in NASA's New Frontiers category are presented.
The Merger of Two Giant Anticyclones in the Atmosphere of Jupiter
Abstract Two giant ovals in Jupiter's southern atmosphere, vortices of counterclockwise-rotating winds, merged in a 3-week period, starting in March 2000. One of the ovals called FA was more than 60
Dynamics and Interaction between a Large-Scale Vortex and the Great Red Spot in Jupiter
Abstract A unique large-scale vortex, the White Tropical Oval (WTrO), was first observed in the South Tropical Zone of Jupiter, at the latitude of the Great Red Spot (GRS) in 1983. Its origin is
