Globe of Jupiter from Pioneer 11 This exquisite image of Jupiter is from Pioneer 11. Taken from a distance of 760,000 kilometers, it is the last of Pioneer 11's approach images that contain the full disk of Jupiter. The image, C5 in the Pioneer catalog, is a combination of a red and a blue light scan with a synthesized green.
