The images showed that the northern oval tended to be quite narrowly confined in latitude in the morning sector, and much more diffuse in the afternoon sector, at times breaking up into multiple arcs extending into the polar cap. This pattern appeared to remain fixed in local time, while there was observational bias from a concentration of images taken when the north auroral oval was pointed toward the Earth, resulting in limited longitude coverage (generally true of all observations from the Earth).

As seen from the table, the sensitivities of auroral images have improved remarkably over time. The FOC images detected only the brightest auroral emissions with exposures of 700–900 sec, WFPC2 images detected the majority of the auroral emissions in 400–600 sec, and STIS images can detect basically all of the auroral features in 100 sec exposures. A subtle feature of the increasing sensitivity is that it also leads to higher effective spatial resolution. While the FOC had the tightest point spread function (PSF), the extended exposures led to blurring of the images from Jupiter’s rapid rotation.
