We have attempted to correct this animation for the time period in between each image capture. The time period between the final and penultimate capture was 22 months, and required the addition of a large number of frames. This smoothed animation can be found here (1.1MB).
This is an animated gif of the expanding light echoes from V838 Monocerotis. It was created using Jasc Animation Shop by John Tanner and Sarah Webb.

The images used to create this animation were sourced from HUBBLESITE.
