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. Click on the images in order to see them without the circles or here to see color images.
