Jupiter's cloud motions as Voyager 1 approaches

Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, Voyager 1 and 2, global views, Jupiter, animation

Go Back

This movie is based on 58 orange-green-blue color composites obtained on every Jovian rotation from January 6 to January 29, 1979. Over this period Voyager 1's distance from Jupiter dropped from 58 to 36 million km, so the resolution and sharpness of the frames increases from start to finish. The 58 frames were tweened, increasing the number of frames by a factor of 8 (that is, 7 synthetic frames are inserted between each real frame).
