Saturn Movie of February 24, 2009 Hubble Observations

About this movie: This animated gif runs through all images that were taken during the February 24th, 2009 Hubble observations of Saturn. It includes nearly 50 individual frames of Saturn taken at different times and through different filters. The moons and Saturn are in lock step and as Saturn rotates, the position of the moons change. To learn more about how the Saturn visualization was created, visit this blog, written by fellow STScI astronomer Frank Summers. For more formats of the Saturn Transit Visualization, visit Hubblesite!
