In 1995, Merry Edenton-Wooten, former Executive Secretary of the Astronomical League, used oils to create the artwork for a new and prophetic planetarium program, "When Worlds Erupt".  Later NASA, ESA, and JAXA missions proved many of her artistic insights correct, as noted by Cassini imaging director Carolyn Porco of JPL and Dr. Tony Phillips of SpaceWeather.  Her paintings are now on loan to the Space and Science Theater Planetarium at Pensacola State College.  Here is a .pdf paper on her work and subsequent discoveries.
