This brief movie clip is made from images taken during 40 hour sequence targetted to the Jovian ring on December 11, 2000. The segment shown here is 16 hours long and shows the motions of the two ring-embedded satellites Adrastea (the fainter of the two) and Metis (the brighter of the two). The satellites each go around twice during this movie. Images such as these, and others taken throughout the encounter, will be used to refine the orbits of these two bodies.
A true color simulated view of Jupiter made from images taken on December 7. At that time, 4 images were necessary to cover the globe of Jupiter. Those images have been mosaicked together and composited to make a true color cylindrical map. The map was projected onto an oblate spheroid to illustrate what Jupiter would have looked like if the cameras had a field of view large enough to capture the entire planet. The resolution is ~ 144 km/pixel.
This smooth movie sequence covering 10 days, from October 31 to November 9, 2000 was made by interpolating in time between cylindrical projections of Jupiter's atmosphere created from real Cassini narrow angle images. The timestep in between frames is 1.1 hours. The interpolation was carried out using the velocity field of the Jovian atmosphere derived from Voyager images 20 years ago.
This is what Jupiter would look like if it were in perpetual sunlight, and one could hover above the Red Spot for 10 days. It is made by wrapping the 2D movie above onto an oblate spheroid matching Jupiter's size and shape.
