This stunning animation of Jupiter will make you want to leave Earth

A scientist and an animator joined forces to show the true beauty and size of Jupiter.

Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran have teamed up to create a beautiful video of still photographs combined together and taken by the Juno Probe.

Juno collects information about Jupiter’s atmosphere and structure. When NASA released the photos of Juno’s most recent transit, Eichstädt, a mathematician, began to work on the images.

Eichstädt spent nearly 60 days combining 36 images into video software he created. Seán Doran a space enthusiast, animator and filmmaker, saw Eichstädt’s work and spent 12 hours refining it and adding a soundtrack.

There were over 2,400 frames that were refined. The video results are beautiful, it shows the enormous size of Jupiter while capturing the structure and makeup of the planet. The video shows Jupiter in a never seen before way.

Seán Doran has posted multiple previews and pictures on his Twitter account.

Doran also collated the best images in a video.
