Europa mosaic from Galileo's I25 orbit The 12 images comprising this Galileo Solid-State Imaging Experiment (SSI) mosaic were obtained on November 25, 1999 at a distance of 96,000 km from Europa. This is the only good global coverage of Europa's Jupiter facing hemisphere. For aesthetic purposes, some narrow horizontal gaps were filled by cloning nearby data.
