Jupiter Globe
Date: 7 Dec 2000

This true-color simulated view of Jupiter is composed of four images taken by NASA's Cassini spacecraft. These images were combined and the cylindrical map projected onto a globe in order to illustrate what Jupiter would look like if the cameras used to image this planet had a field-of-view large enough to capture the entire planet. The resolution is about 144 km (89 miles) per pixel. Jupiter's moon Europa is casting the shadow on the planet.
