Stunning Amateur Time-lapse of Jupiter Re-enacts Voyager Flyby
A team of seven Swedish amateur astronomers have reached their objective of duplicating the Voyager probe's iconic 1979 flyby of Saturn by means of images taken with their own ground-based telescopes. Back in the 1970′s when NASA propelled the two Voyager rockets to Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, Voyager 1 initiated taking pictures of Jupiter as it move toward the planet in January 1979 and finished its Jupiter encounter in initial April. In that time it took nearly 19,000 pictures and many other technical measurements to generate the short movie, which you can see below, viewing the complex movement of the bright band of clouds for the first time.
Currently, 35 years later a team of seven Swedish amateur astronomers attained their goal of duplicating the Voyager 1 film, not with additional flyby but with images taken with their own ground-based telescopes. Their recently released film, below specifics in the video work they did and the obstacles they overcame (counting extremely bad weather in Sweden this season) to create their dream a actuality. They named their development "Voyager 3." Watch it here:
