S/2002 J1 Jupiter Satellite Movie Images

.

These figures show the discovery images of Jupiter satellite S/2002 J1 taken about 30 minutes apart on UT October 31, 2002. The motion of the satellite clearly stands out compared to the steady state background of stars and galaxies. The stars and galaxies appear slightly elongated because the telescope's motion was tracked near the rate of the satellite's motion. Jupiter is not in the field, but is a few degrees to the West of these images. Click on the images to see them without the arrows.
