Barge on Jupiter
Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, Voyager 1 and 2, Jupiter
This high resolution Voyager 2 mosaic shows the area near a brown barge in Jupiter's northern hemisphere. The barge is partially visible at upper right. These barges usually appear at the northern edge of the North Equatorial Belt (or sometimes within the North Equatorial Belt) near 16°N. The images in this mosaic were acquired from a distance of ~1.3 million kilometers from Jupiter's center at a resolution of ~13 km/pixel. Color, contrast, and sharpness have been enhanced to better show various details.
