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.

    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 many storms have occurred during the last 2 months?
