First proper Jupiter session of the year!

22-23 December 2013 Jupiter

And a little movie (about 1/3 of a revolution of the planet!)  Jupiter spins pretty quickly – about 10 hours for a complete revolution (=one Jupiter day).  Io is the moon that appears from behind the planet. The Great Red Spot seems to have “reddened” since last year.  Forty frames – one frame every 5 minutes.
