Latest view of Jupiter from NASA’s Juno spacecraft from Enneagon on Vimeo.
The Juno spacecraft is a wondrous thing. Every 53 days it flies really close to Jupiter, taking photos along the way. This incredible video is made up up of still images.
It’s reported that it takes 1.5 days for the photo data, captured over two hours to be downloaded by scientists on our planet.
After the raw photos were beamed to Earth and made available to the public, Gerald Eichstädtcolorized them, Sean Doran set the stills in motion, and Avi Solomon added some music to create the video.
One of the great things about living in this day and age is the technology available to lay our eyes on beauty like this.
You can find more of these colorized images and videos on Doran’s Flickr.
