The Hubble Telescope View of Jupiter is Amazing

Posted by Dan Satterfield

From NASA:

New imagery from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope is revealing details never before seen on Jupiter. High-resolution maps and spinning globes (rendered in the 4k Ultra HD format) are the first products to come from a program to study the solar system’s outer planets each year using Hubble. The observations are designed to capture a broad range of features, including winds, clouds, storms and atmospheric chemistry. These annual studies will help current and future scientists see how such giant worlds change over time.

This video is in the public domain. It can be downloaded along with the new Jupiter globes and maps at: http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/goto?12021

NOTE: NASA has a super HD movie view you can download at the link above, and it will have higher definition than the video I posted here!
