The movie on the left is a time-interpolated, evenly spaced sequence of frames showing motions in Jupiter’s atmosphere over the course of 5 days, from October 1 to October 5, 2000. The smallest features are about 500 km across.

The movie on the right is made from narrow angle blue filter images taken during 7 separate Jupiter rotations between October 1 and October 5, 2000, shows the counterclockwise atmospheric motions around the Great Red Spot. The smallest features are about 500 km across.
