Fresh images and video clips of Jupiter, along with newly recorded, bizarre "sounds of Jupiter," acquired by NASA's Cassini and Galileo spacecraft, are available today at the following websites:
NASA's Saturn-bound Cassini spacecraft flew past Jupiter early this morning, temporarily teaming up for joint observations with sibling spacecraft Galileo, which has been in orbit around the giant planet since December 1995. Together, the two spacecraft have been observing Jupiter's huge magnetic environment, the planet's atmosphere, rings and moons.
Both missions are managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C.
