This blink gif is switching between PJ32 and PJ33. The maps are cropped to the overlapping valid area of both PJs.

The upper right quadrant shows two of the CPCs rotating around each other clockwise by about 13 degrees between PJ32 and PJ33.

That rotation results in an obvious deviation of the northern CPC cluster from its previous convex octagonal shape.
