New Jupiter Satellite Movie Images
These figures show the discovery images of the Jupiter satellite
S/2001 J3. The motion of the satellite clearly stands out compared to
the steady state background of stars and galaxies. Jupiter is not in
the field, but is a few degrees to the West of these images. The
satellite has a green circle around it to show its position in the
three images. Each image is 50 arcseconds in height and 90 arcseconds long
with North on top and East to the right. The images were taken on
December 9, 2001 at 13:38:33, 14:28:19, and 15:04:10 UT.
