......

These figures show images of the new Jupiter satellite S/2003 J1 taken about 8 minutes apart on UT March 4, 2003. 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.
