Movie of Jupiter's north pole from Juno JIRAM
A time-lapse showing motion near Jupiter's north pole. The time-lapse sequence was created from three mosaics of images obtained by the Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument aboard NASA's Juno spacecraft on February 2, 2017. The three mosaics were obtained over a period of a little under 3 hours. During that time the spacecraft was approaching Jupiter and the resolution of the images was getting better. The time-lapse is in orthographic projection and shows the polar area from directly above the north pole. It has been 'tweened' (in effect adding synthetic frames) to make the motion smoother. Because the original video is very short it is looped four times. For full resolution, download the image in MP4 format.
