At the risk of sounding like a cliche, that was pretty awesome!

That is pretty cool. You can just make out the deep pit craters hinting at the unusual nature of this moon.

I worked on this sequence back in 2005 but never thought of animating it.

Since no one else has mentioned it yet, I just wanted to compliment Bjorn on his amazing job assembling the Jupiter mosaic I posted yesterday. At 2048 by 2048 it's got more pixels on a roughly true-color globe of Jupiter than any other image I've ever seen on the Web.

Holy Cow! I never clicked to enlarge, so I thought it was some old work I saw him do a long time ago. WOW!

I second this - I've nabbed it for my desktop - truly spectacular - thank you Bjorn.

Yep, Bjorn posted the image here a while ago and it's truly a masterpiece. Probably the best Voyager Jupiter image I ever saw and the difference in the planet's appearance to more recent images makes it all the more amazing.

Actually, this one is better than the one you saw previously, Gordan -- he did extra work cleaning up the terminator.

Thanks for comments! tongue.gif

And Jupiter from Björn is really amazing! Making mosaic (and in color!) of giant planets is really difficult, because of rapidly changing atmosphere. I think that Björn's mosaic is one of the best images of Jupiter I have ever seen.

The only higher resolution global color mosaic I have seen of Jupiter is this Cassini true color mosaic. There is another well know high resolution global Cassini mosaic but its resolution is not as high as in the new Voyager 2 mosaic and the color balance could also be improved. This new Voyager 2 mosaic is by far the highest resolution global color mosaic I have seen of Jupiter from Voyager data.

As previously noted the new Voyager 2 mosaic is an improved version of an earlier mosaic I did several years ago. The resolution is somewhat higher, I spent lots of work on the terminator and the color balance is better. It's not perfect though - it's probably impossible to get perfect color if all you have is orange and violet source data.

Interestingly almost all of the 'official' Voyager global color images are based on Voyager 1 data. I have seen only 2 or 3 (!) 'official' global Voyager 2 color composites. So in a way I'm filling a gap here smile.gif. There were also some significant changes to Jupiter's appearance between the two Voyager flybys, especially near the GRS, which make this even more interesting.
