Jupiter | Rediscovered Astronomy

By J.J. Del Mar


This animation of the largest planet in the solar system was rendered with the use of NASA textures on Blender. This isn’t a rotation of the planet; the animation presents a loop around the planet as it would be seen from a space probe. Jupiter’s rotation varies depending on the equator or closer to the poles of the planet. The great spot rotates rapidly just below the equator.
