In the final minutes of a recent close flyby of Jupiter, NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured a departing view of the planet’s swirling southern hemisphere. This color-enhanced image was taken at 7:13 p.m. PDT on Sept. 6, 2018 (10:13 p.m. EDT) as the spacecraft performed its 15th close flyby of Jupiter. At the time, Juno was about 55,600 miles (89,500 kilometers) from the planet’s cloud tops, above a southern latitude of approximately 75 degrees.  Citizen scientist Gerald Eichstädt created this image using data from the spacecraft’s JunoCam imager.

** Juno’s Perijove-15 Jupiter Flyby, Reconstructed in 125-Fold Time-LapseGerald Eichstädt

From the caption:

Early on September 07, 2018, UTC, NASA’s Juno probe successfully performed her Perijove-15 Jupiter flyby. Like during most of the recent Jupiter flybys, good contact to Earth and incremented storage allowed taking close-up images of good quality.

The movie is a reconstruction of the 112 minutes between 2018-09-07T00:30:00.000 and 2018-09-07T02:22:00.000 in 125-fold time-lapse.
It is based on 25 of the JunoCam images taken, and on spacecraft trajectory data provided via SPICE kernel files.

In steps of five real-time seconds, one still images of the movie has been rendered from at least one suitable raw image. This resulted in short scenes, usually of a few seconds. Playing with 25 images per second results in 125-fold time-lapse.
