Date: 22 Jul 1994
Image of Jupiter with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope's Planetary Camera. Eight impact sights are visible. From left to right are the E/F complex (barley visible on the edge of the planet), the star shaped H site, the impact sites for tiny N, Q1, small Q2, and R, and on the far right limb the D/G complex. The D/G complex also shows extended haze at the edge of the planet. The smallest features in the this image are less than 200 km across. This image is a color composite of three filters at 9530, 550, and 4100 Angstroms.
