3x2 'anniversary image mosaic' of the Great Red Spot (GRS) that Galileo obtained during its first orbit of Jupiter on June 26, 1996 from a distance of 1.5 million kilometers.
This image is based on data obtained through two filters, a 756 nm near infrared filter and a violet filter. Color and contrast have been exaggerated to enhance the visibility of various features and the image has been processed with an unsharp mask to more clearly show small scale features. The image shows the GRS from the spacecraft's vantage point, i.e. it is not map projected. The viewing geometry is shown below.
