Galileo Zooms in on Jupiter's Red Spot
Date: 27 Aug 1996
What does the largest storm system ever recorded look like close-up?
This storm system is Jupiter's Great Red Spot and it was captured in detail by Galileo. Using real images from three color filters, the Galileo team was able to compute what a person would see if able to float just above this ancient rotating cloud system.
