Androgeos Linea Flyover

Androgeos Linea Flyover

This animation showing a flyover of ridged plains on Europa was created using stereo imaging data obtained by NASA's Galileo spacecraft. This area was observed by Galileo at 66 feet (20 meters) per pixel, one of the highest resolution observations ever acquired of Europa. Several cross-cutting patches of ridged material of different ages are apparent, distinguished by different ridge orientations and spacing. The relatively young, prominent, double ridge Androgeos Linea stands 1000 feet (300 meters) above the surrounding plains. These ridges may have once been the sites of activity on Europa.

A greyscale image of this feature is available from NASA's Planetary Photojournal.
