Jupiter gets a flyby

Jupiter, as seen from Voyager 1.

From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Wednesday:  

  • The Federal Reserve issues its Beige Book summary of commentary on current economic conditions.
  • 35 years ago Jupiter got its close-up when Voyager 1 made its closest approach to the planet. The spacecraft’s journey continues. It has since entered Interstellar Space.
  • And tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent.
