Good grief Gordan - you just keep on coming up with the goods! ohmy.gif That animation is the definition of awesome (well, according to my dictionary it is, anyway).

Here's a little something I knocked-up this morning:

You definitely just coined the motto of all you imagesmiths, and that of this site... smile.gif

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Nice one Nprev - maybe Doug could have some T-shirts made up with that emblazoned across the front...

Here's a Europa transit from the same day as before (Dec 12th 2000):

Image with Io is magnified or is it mosaic (is bigger than Cassini CCD)?


Good point Machi. I usually work with images at 400% of their original size in order to minimize any alignment errors. In that instance, I neglected to reduce the final composite to its normal dimensions. However, these Cassini pictures are of such quality that at 200% tghey still look very crisp and presentable.

For a different perspective, here is a Galileo/groundbased fusion taken by Galileo from September 13, 2000, as Cassini was beginning its approach.

Here is an larger view of Ganymede (for which much better Galileo data was available).

I have long had plans to work with the Cassini data, but with Eli's arrival those plans are shelved for now.

A vista of Jupiter and Io from the 10th of December 2000. The teardrop-shaped white cloud just below Io later merged with another white spot and metamorphosed into Red Spot Junior (if memory serves):

Beautiful image, although the background could use some cleaning.

Thanks for the pointer, Ted - I've uploaded a corrected version.

And let me belatedly congratulate you on the birth of your son. Wonderful news! cool.gif

Thanks!

As for the image background, if I had a dollar for every time I've done that and had to covertly switch the image out, I'd be a rich man.

Here is a closeup detail from January 1, 2001, again from Galileo.

Nice one Ted. Here's another Jupiter-Io pairing that I prepared a little earlier...

Hey, nice one! I don't recall seeing that Io - GRS arrangement when I was hunting for Kodak shots.

This has in fact been done as a part of a new Science On A Sphere presentation. The Jupiter animation looks great at higher resolution. The next thing I'm checking into is whether this movie from the Cassini Dec 2000 flyby is available in a stand alone version. The full 1.6 GB SOS presentation where the Cassini animation is embedded can be downloaded here.


And more specifically the individual frames for the Jupiter animation can be found here:

http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a0036...1x1801_2x1_30p/

This is probably the best version for this Cassini Jupiter animated dataset that I've come across. Now we just have to make an animation file for this (e.g. an MP4).
