Voyager 2 at Jupiter
Voyager 2 mosaic of Jupiter, taken on June 30, 1979 from a distance of 8.74 million kilometers. The image is centered at ~285° longitude.

Because this mosaic took ~30 minutes to acquire, Jupiter rotated approximately 15 degrees during the acquisition period. All frames in this mosaic have been warped to align with the first image taken during this sequence. Due to Jupiter's rotation, cloud features are shifted progressively further to the east than their actual location as you move towards the left side of the image.
