 Neptune Animation

By J.J. Del Mar


The Great Dark Spot has vanished, but smaller dark spots appear on and off at various latitudes of the planet Neptune. The gas giant’s atmosphere appears to be in constant motion. Neptune also has clouds that are clearly distinguishable on NASA footage. For this animation, different layers were used to render darker patches of blue in the planet’s atmosphere.
