Pioneer 11 view of Jupiter's north pole
Ted Stryk created this view of Jupiter's north pole by combining 's six best pictures (12 if you count the color pairs as individual pictures) to make a mosaic of Jupiter looking down on its north pole soon after Pioneer 11's closest approach. To date, no other spacecraft has gotten such a direct view of a Jovian pole.
