Figure 1

Narrative This true-colour 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 kilometres (89 miles) per pixel. Jupiter's satellite Europa is casting the shadow on the planet.
