3 hours of rotation - Jupiter, GRS and NEB Upheaval Animation

Postby mike salway » Sat Jun 27, 2009 11:16 am

Hi all

Captured on the 23rd June (local time), this animation represents 3 hours of rotation on Jupiter, as the Great Red Spot (quite a bit paler this year) transits across the face of the gas giant. Also visible, down lower on the NEB, is the new “NEB Upheaval” – a series of new spots and disturbances that are likely to change the look of the NEB for the remainder of the season.

Click the image to see the full 17-frame animation which covers 3 hours of rotation. It’s a 2.4mb gif file.

Also attached are 3 stills from the animation, showing near the start, middle and end of the sequence.

Gosh that's nice, thanks for posting. I guess the "UFO" apparently attached to the right limb in the last frame is one of the Galilean satellites....
