Callisto in color from Galileo orbit E11
Galileo captured this global view of Callisto on its 11th orbit of Jupiter, on November 5, 1997.

The filters used for this image cover a broader range of the spectrum than human eyes can see.  Galileo was 687,000 kilometers from Callisto when it took this image, at a phase angle of just 1 degree.  Image scale is 6.9 kilometers per pixel. The image was reconstructed from the original data by Ted Stryk.  About 10% of the right side of the disk was marred by data dropouts; Stryk reconstructed missing data from images taken through other filters.
