These selected movies are
linearly interpolated time lapse animations of the
parsec-scale jet evolution in the MOJAVE AGN sample.
Movies of other AGN in the MOJAVE sample can be accessed
directly from their individual source pages in our data
In the total intensity movies (click
on a thumbnail imag
e), the pseudocolors represent
15 GHz total intensity. In the linear polarization movies
(click on a source name
the pseudocolors represent fractional linear polarization,
and are superimposed on total intensity contours. The
sticks represent electric polarization vectors, and are
superimposed on linearly polarized intensity contours plus
a single lowest total intensity contour. The full-width
half-maximum interferometric restoring beam dimensions are
represented by the cross at the lower left of the images.
Some movies of particular interest are:
A movie of the nearby
quasar 3C 273
, which includes fitted accelerating
trajectories of numerous individual superluminal features.
