More than 440 five-micron "video" pictures of Jupiter with 1" resolution were made during 1973 September, October, and December. Comparisons of these pictures with color photographs show direct, detailed correlations with the darker "purple" features. Forty-four of these pictures were made just before Pioneer 10 encounter.
