This movie shows the portion of Jupiter around the Great Red Spot as it swirls through more than 60 Jupiter days. Notice the difference in speed and direction of the various zones of the atmosphere. The interaction of the atmospheric clouds and storm shows how dynamic the Jovian atmosphere is.

These images were taken by Voyager 1 as it approached Jupiter in 1979. This sequence is made from 66 images taken once every Jupiter rotation period (about 10 hours).
