Images of Jupiter 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2000


Jupiter 2005!

Student Nikki visited Yerkes to take images of Io as it reached Eastern elongation on March 29th, 2005.  She took images of Jupiter and three of the moons each hour at about 33 minutes past the hour.  Europa becomes eclipsed by Jupiter's shadow and then is occulted by Jupiter.  Ganymede is moving away from Jupiter.  Link here to get these images in fts formatYou can see the jpgs of these images here.  You can download Makali'i software to blink these images.  Makali'i  was created as an outreach image processor for the Subaru telescope.  Here is a link to the site for this software; it works on a PC computer. http://makalii.mtk.nao.ac.jp/index.html.en
