Script

<script>
$(document).ready(function(e) {

setInterval(function() {

var imgfirstSrc = $("#img-1").attr("src");
var imgSecSrc = $("#img-2").attr("src");
var imgthirdSrc = $("#img-3").attr("src");
var imgfourthSrc = $("#img-4").attr("src");
var imgfifthSrc = $("#img-5").attr("src");
var imgsixthSrc = $("#img-6").attr("src");


$("#img-2").attr("src",imgfirstSrc);
$("#img-3").attr("src",imgSecSrc);
$("#img-4").attr("src",imgthirdSrc);
$("#img-5").attr("src",imgfourthSrc);
$("#img-6").attr("src",imgfifthSrc);
$("#img-1").attr("src",imgsixthSrc);



},1000);
});
</script>


EDIT

I have to add more animation with click/stop events. When user click the red image place of 270 they have to replace the place of 90 and animation will be stop; for more clarification you have to see the image below. I have tried

Using jQuery Animation: http://jsfiddle.net/eT7SD/6/

Using mathand jQuery : http://jsfiddle.net/eT7SD/7/

Using CSS3 Rotation (just for fun): http://jsfiddle.net/dMnKX/

Just add a class 'box' to your animating divs like in the fiddle and use this js:

$(document).ready(function(e) {

    var animate = function(){

        var boxes = $('.box');

        $.each(boxes, function(idx, val){

            var coords = $(boxes[idx+1]).position() || $(boxes[0]).position();

            $(val).animate({

                "left" : coords.left,
                "top" : coords.top

            }, 1500, function(){})   

        });
    }

    animate();

    var timer = setInterval(animate, 2000);  
});

EDIT:

$(document).ready(function(e) {
    var angles = [90, 45, 315, 270, 225, 135];
    var unit = 215;

    var animate = function(){

        $.each($('.box'), function(idx, val){

            var rad = angles[idx] * (Math.PI / 180);
            $(val).css({
                left: 550 + Math.cos(rad) * unit + 'px',
                top: unit * (1 - Math.sin(rad))  + 'px'
            });

            angles[idx]--;
        });

    }
    var timer = setInterval(animate, 10);

});

You have to change the left, top, width, height properties of boxes, standardize them, set the correct unit (circle radius) and initial angles. But for a preview, i think this is what you want (just needs a little more work).
