This is the only thing you need to see today.

Forget the forgettable weather.

Behold Jupiter and its Galilean moons.

Take a moment and consider what you are actually seeing.  Galileo discovered the four largest moons of Jupiter in 1610. Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.  He simultaneously had further proof that the Earth was not the centre of the universe.  Now we actually get to witness the movements he noted over time, not just a representation or animation, but for real, personally, simply capture by a camera on a machine millions of miles away and on devices we can carry in our pockets or on our wrists. We live in amazing times.
