Galileo captured this global view of Europa on its 2nd orbit of Jupiter, on September 7, 1996.

 The filters used for this image cover a broader range of the spectrum than human eyes can see. Galileo was 678,000 kilometers from Europa when it took this image, at a phase angle of just 2 degrees. Image scale is 6.9 kilometers per pixel.
