NASA shares time-lapse photo of Jupiter's south pole
by Brooks Hays
Washington (UPI) Feb 23, 2018

New time-lapse photos of Jupiter reveals a unique cloud pattern circling the gas giant's south pole.

The time-lapse sequence was captured by the camera on NASA's Juno spacecraft. JunoCam snapped the photo series Feb. 7, between 10:21 a.m. and 11:01 a.m. ET. NASA shared the images online Friday.

Though each of the images may look the same at first glance, a closer look reveals a shifting cloud pattern. A number of studies and surveys -- powered by both space satellite and ground telescope observations -- have revealed Jupiter's atmosphere to be an incredibly dynamic place.

Though Jupiter's Great Red Spot garners much of the attention, the gas giant hosts a diverse variety of atmospheric patterns.

The latest photo series was processed by citizen scientist Gerald Eichstädt. JunoCam's raw images are available online for public use.

Europa and Other Planetary Bodies May Have Extremely Low-Density Surfaces
Tucson AZ (SPX) Jan 25, 2018
Spacecraft landing on Jupiter's moon Europa could see the craft sink due to high surface porosity, research by Planetary Science Institute Senior Scientist Robert Nelson shows. Nelson was the lead author of a laboratory study of the photopolarimetric properties of bright particles that explain unusual negative polarization behavior at low phase angles observed for decades in association with atmosphereless bodies including asteroids 44 Nysa, 64 Angelina and the Galilean satellites Io, Europa and G ... read more
