To achieve the Hubble color composite images, three filters were used to observe Jupiter in three separate wavelengths across the optical part of the spectrum. Although Jupiter and its moons are moving slightly during the 3- to 10-second exposures, their motion is notable during the time between exposures, a time period covering 90 to 120 seconds because of detector readout. Looking closely at the above color drafts of Jupiter will show movement in the cloud structure, the moons, and their shadows. All filters were aligned for the composite images.
