Thirty years of Saturn, at 2 years per second, rendered in 2005.  The 
textures are procedural, but partially based on real measurements. 
Opposition surge was not modeled.

Then and now, I knew very little about MPEG compression, so I don't know 
if this is optimal.

Would it be possible for a moderator to cancel this thread?  I accidentally
posted it to the wrong newsgroup.  When I try to delete the OP from my
newsreader (Thunderbird), it only deletes my local copy.

That's a nice animation. I had forgotten how oblate Saturn is. Thanks 
for reminding me.

You and me both. I remember posting an uncompressed image about the same 
time. And getting slagged off for it. No names, no pack drill but I'm 
pointing an elbow at you Warp. :P

Looks really nice. It took me several views to notice the 'darkening' of
Saturn's atmosphere, when seen against the rings. A nice touch! That makes it
look much more realistic.

Yeah-- Mpeg 1, Mpeg 2 (DVDs), Mpeg 3(?), Mpeg 4/AVC h2.64; we need to be
scientists to keep it all straight. I use the latter almost exclusively now...
except when I don't, ha  (AVI videos with Mpeg 3 or 4... I think...)
