The Earth’s orbit is taking us further and further from Jupiter. This means that the time I get to image Jupiter gets less and less as the Earth starts to round the Sun. Less time to image results in fewer candidate video streams.

Earlier in May it was dark before Jupiter cleared my eastern treeline and, once it was dark, I was able to get as many as 57 attempts. On the 22nd, I was only able to get 9 attempts before Jupiter hit the western treeline and after processing, only 1 of the 9 met the criteria for submission to NASA’s JunoCam site.
