This image shows Neith Crater, an unusual impact structure about 160 km (100 miles) in diameter on Ganymede. Four images of Neith were obtained under low sun elevation in April 1997 during Galileo's 7th orbit around Jupiter with the Solid State Imaging (SSI) system from a distance of about 15,500 km (9,600 miles) to produce this mosaic at a resolution of ~150 m/pixel. The sun illuminates the scene from the right. North is approximately pointing towards the top of the mosaic. This mosaic was created by unmannedspaceflight.com user OWW.
