Backlit Jupiter and its rings
Backlit Jupiter and its rings This image of Jupiter's rings was taken by Voyager 2 looking back towards Jupiter from inside its shadow one day after its flyby. The lower ring is cut short by Jupiter's shadow. The image was produced from two images taken through the orange and violet filters and a synthesized green channel from a distance of ~1.5 million km. North is toward the upper right of the image. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Judy Schmidt
