 The image is a mosaic of five different pointings. The filters used for this image cover a broader range of the spectrum than human eyes can see. Galileo was 143,000 kilometers from Europa when it took this image, at a phase angle of 77 degrees. Image scale is 1.5 kilometers per pixel. The area shown is primarily the anti-jovian, trailing hemisphere.
