Abstract: We construct a canonical quadratic rational point on a non-hyperelliptic genus four Jacobian and show that it generates the Mordell--Weil group of the universal Jacobian. We also study how the point degenerates on a hyperelliptic Jacobian. We will finish with some unsolved problems related to this point.
