Over the past week, I was lucky enough to get images of Jupiter showing the same central meridian (think of that as the longitude of the planet at the center of our view). Two images of CM=207 taken almost exactly a week apart (0351ut on Nov. 23, 2012 and 0438ut on Nov. 30, 2012) were used to make this animation showing the motion of Jupiter’s clouds over the span of a week. Please note that the intermediate frames are simulated.
It’s interesting to note the bright patches developing in the equatorial zone (that also seems to be pushing northward a bit), as well as the motion of Oval BA relative to the GRS. Also, a very bright spot is erupting in the SEB following the GRS.
* The Nov. 30 image was reduced in size to correspond to the apparent diameter of Jupiter during the earlier session.
