Abstract

Simultaneous imaging and spectroscopic observations of Jupiter's far- ultraviolet aurora covering half a jovian rotation were made on 31 May 1994. The Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 images revealed dramatic and rapidly changing auroral features, including discrete longitudinal structures along the auroral ovals, with variable contrast; a poleward offset in a north oval sector, showing equatorward motion near dusk; emissions polewards of the ovals, apparently co-rotating; and a bright event developing near the dawn limb. Viewing geometry effects explain the rotational intensity modulation observed by the International Ultraviolet Explorer, without intrinsic longitudinal asymmetries.
