Over the last few days we've been looking back at the Galileo's October 11, 1999 flyby of Io that occurred ten years ago this past Sunday. We've looked at the planning that went into the science observations as well as some of the issues encountered during flyby. Today, I wanted to present a video I created using Celestia and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro. This combines a simulation of the flyby with some of the actual data that was returned during each observation. And by ALL MEANS, full-screen this video!

I had hoped to have this animation done yesterday, but what are you going to do? I hope you all enjoy!
