Jupiter Globe Rotation

About this video
Duration: 42 seconds

The giant planet Jupiter has a diameter of more than 10 times Earth's diameter. Its striped and dynamic atmosphere, dotted with massive, powerful storms, has been a continuing Hubble target over the years.

A collection of images from 2007 have been combined to get full, even coverage of Jupiter. The resulting mosaic has been mapped onto a sphere, and one full rotation is presented in the visualization.
