Europa's ridges Galileo captured the images for this mosaic of ridges on Europa on Feburary 20, 1997. The image covers an area about 14 by 17 kilometers in size, and includes a 2.6-kilometer-wide double ridge, with a trough in the center, apparently cutting across earlier sets of double ridges.


Original image data dated on or about February 20, 1997.
