Caption

Timelapse footage of the rotation of the planet Jupiter, as seen from an Earth-based telescope. Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System, with some 1300 times the volume of Earth. It is a gas giant with no solid surface, instead having a huge atmosphere that gets progressively denser with depth. The upper atmosphere is marked by prominent light and dark bands of cloud, arranged into dark belts and light zones. The tops of the clouds rotate in just under ten hours, although as it is not solid, the equator rotates more quickly than the poles. Jupiter orbits the Sun around 5.2 times further out that the Earth, at some 778 million kilometres. Filmed on 15th September 2011.
