Hubble Spots Rare Triple Eclipse on Jupiter


Video: Closeup of Satellites and Shadows Moving Across Jupiter

Running Time: 40 seconds

This animation was created based on the images taken during the event. While Hubble took 20 images during the event, the hundreds of images needed for the animation were created from the original images using the measured rotation of Jupiter and the motions of the satellites and their shadows.
