In my opinion, one of the best things humanity has captured on video. Done in 1979 by Voyager 1 as it approached Jupiter.

Jupiter’s Great Red Spot Viewed by Voyager I
At about 89,000 miles in diameter, Jupiter could swallow 1,000 Earths. It is the largest planet in the solar system and perhaps the most majestic. Vibrant bands of clouds carried by winds that can exceed 400 mph continuously circle the planet’s atmosphere. Such winds sustain spinning anticyclones like the Great Red Spot — a raging storm three and a half times the size of Earth located in Jupiter’s southern hemisphere. In January and February 1979, NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft zoomed toward Jupiter, capturing hundreds of images during its approach, including this close-up of swirling clouds around Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. This image was assembled from three black and white negatives. The observations revealed many unique features of the planet that are still being explored to this day. > View more images and watch a time-lapse of Jupiter assembled from images taken by the spacecraft Credit: NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

Launching February 2nd 2013
Sketchbook and notes from a Dark Sky Public Art project creating shelter, sonics and a way for star gazers in Galloway Forest, Scotland. The forest is unique in having zero light pollution, there is only one other dark sky park in Europe. Therefore the views of the night sky are remarkable.

There were five traditional stone bothy shelters in the park, our work is at White Laggan bothy in the interior of the forest by Loch Dee.

We made thermal Spacesuits to combat elements and Sky gazers which are angled for observing. We have also made a vinyl LP of space ballads. The space suits are free for public use.
