High-resolution mosaic of Jupiter

High-resolution mosaic of Jupiter
High-resolution mosaic of Jupiter A 12-frame mosaic covering Jupiter's iconic Red Spot as seen from Voyager 1. Mosaics like this one were not produced at the time of the flyby because the computing power was not up to the task of warping and blending the component images. NASA / JPL / Björn Jónsson

This is a 12 image mosaic (12 orange + 12 violet + 12 synthetic green images). The images were obtained on March 2, 1979 at a range of 4.3 million km. The first image (C1629045.IMQ) was obtained at 05:09:23 and the last one (C1629131.IMQ) at 05:46:11. The resolution is roughly 43 km/pixel.
