Storm Movies [ID: 3]

Juno’s orbit is evolving such that the closest approach latitude is moving to the north and we spend a lot of time seeing the southern hemisphere as the spacecraft is outbound from perijove. This extra time allows us to take multiple images in sequence and combine them into movies.

    How many storms have occurred in the last 4 months?

    During the week of July 16, 1994, comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, broken into 20 plus pieces by tidal forces on its last orbit, smashed into the planet Jupiter, releasing the explosive energy of 500 thousand megatons. A team of observers from LLNL used the LLNL Speckle Imaging Camera mounted on the University of California`s Lick Observatory 3 Meter Telescope to capture continuous sequences of planet images during the comet encounter. Post processing with the bispectral phase reconstruction algorithm improves the resolution by removing much of the blurring due to atmospheric turbulence. High resolution images of the planet surface showing the aftermath of the impact are probably the best that were obtained from any ground-based telescope. We have been looking at the regions of the fragment impacts to try to discern any dynamic behavior of the spots left on Jupiter`s cloud tops. Such information can lead to conclusions about the nature of the comet and of Jupiter`s atmosphere. So far, the Hubble Space Telescope has observed expanding waves from the G impact whose mechanism is enigmatic since they appear to be too slow to be sound waves and too fast to be gravity waves, given the present knowledge of Jupiter`s atmosphere. Some of our data on the G and L impact region complements the Hubble observations but, so far, is inconclusive about spot dynamics.

    Have the storms been getting bigger or are they staying around a size

    Can i know the wind speed of Jupiter?

    Jupiter is covered with clouds of ammonia crystals mainly it sulfide's the orange, red and yellow coloration of the clouds and storms occurs due the compounds that change color when exposed to U-V light from the sun the substances could be hydrocarbons, sulfur or ammonia. these chromophores mix with the warmer lower deck of clouds leading to the varying color patterns on both the poles and overall the planet. We cannot map each storm exactly as the spacecraft is i a polar orbit and during a perijove it gets a less time span to click a picture instead as the spacecraft is northbound it gets more time observing the southern part so it when it passes by it takes multiple shots which are then sequenced and combined into a movie and during the next perijove it maps that place again informing us of the changes. These coloration can tell us about the true constituents of Jupiter's atmosphere and it's inner chaos.

    Hello, can you add more videos and images of Jupiters storms

    How have you tracked features in a long term version of changes to storms?

    ¿podrían sacar mas secuencias de las tormentas?
