DESCRIPTION: A DLIC of a fast spin-up as seen from far away. The red zones correspond to fields generated when the sphere is in the process of spinning up, the darker blue zones are the radiation fields generated while the sphere is at constant speed, and the lighter blue zones are the static fields.
This is for a fast smooth polynomial spin-up.
