Jupiter Gets A Close-Up
NASA's Cassini spacecraft took this true color mosaic of Jupiter, the most detailed global color portrait of the planet ever produced. The smallest visible features are approximately 60 kilometers (37 miles) across. Although Cassini's camera can see more colors than humans can, Jupiter's colors in this new view appear very close to the way the human eye would see them.
The mosaic is made up of 27 images taken in December 2000, during the spacecraft's closest approach to the gas giant. The Cassini-Huygens mission is slated to arrive at Saturn in the summer of 2004. Photo Credit: NASA.
