Get the spin on Jupiter, the movie!

         Yes folks, the BIGGEST star in the film biz is the great Jupiter herself — veiled in ultraviolet!
         Observations in the ultraviolet part of the light spectrum reveal features in Jupiter's stratosphere that are transparent in the visible-light portion of the spectrum. One surprise is the dark vortex whose birth and migration can be seen during the 11-week span of the movie taken while Cassini was approaching Jupiter in late 2000. Development of this feature resembles development of ozone holes in Earth's stratosphere in that both processes appear to occur only within confined masses of high-altitude polar air. The similarity may help scientists understand both processes better.
         Read the story? NOW SEE THE MOVIE! Oh . . . hold on . . . that used to be available online. But no more. I guess even NASA has a bandwidth problem sometimes.
