Jupiter and Saturn 4K Time Lapse

Here's my time lapse spanning the best 45 minutes of the Great Conjunction that I was able to observe. Played back at 15x, 30x, 60x and 120x realtime. If you watch the fastest versions of the video you can see the moons of Jupiter and Saturn moving through the frame. Each frame was automatically aligned on Jupiter and stacked in 0.5 second segments to make up the frames of the time lapse.

It's pretty cool to be able to see the cast shadow of Saturn on the rings like that.

Pretty cool, thanks Astro.

I was expecting them to come closer together and converge/lap over eachother but I guess that's as close as they came and then started to drift apart after that?

To my total disappointment, it has been cloudy very I live for Dec 21 and 22. What are the chances of still seeing this tonight or tomorrow or is it completely not the same anymore as it was a few nights ago? I was really bummed that we couldn't see it.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3451740


The closest they came was 1/10th of a degree. That's about 20 times larger than Jupiter itself in the view. That's still incredibly close though, this is the only time in my lifetime I will be able to fit both planets in the view at this magnification.

Re: Jupiter and Saturn 4K Time Lapse
That is so awesome to see!

Dumb question: why does Saturn look to be at a (roughly) 90 degree axis to earth's perspective?

I always thought...Neptune?... was the only planet spinning on a different axis than the rest of them.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79799867


1/10 of a degree is about twice the maximum field of view of the Hubble Space Telescope. Now maybe they took some mosaic image and will stitch them together, I don't know, but they certainly couldn't fit both in a single field of view with any of the main cameras at one moment in time. I never said they would line up, they were always going to be about 6 arcminutes apart. This is why you guys should do your own research, don't just trust things your spoon fed from unreliable sources.

Nvm, when I look at it on full screen mode, I see Jupiter is also at an angle, so it's the screen aspect that's at 90 degrees, not the p[antes themselves!

Yes, you can rotate the camera inside the telescope any angle you want. There's no restriction on it. I rotated the camera 90° to be able to fit both planets in the field of view at the maximum magnification.
