Galileo Image Gallery: Callisto

Global Color Variations on Callisto

The Voyager mission sent back good images of Callisto, so most of Galileo's resources were focused on areas missed in the earlier flyby. The science objectives were:

  • Acquiring high-resolution samples of typical cratered terrain and components of the Valhalla and Asgaard basins.
  • Color sampling of the surface at local, regional, and global scales.
  • Determining the surfaces photometric properties.
