Jupiter's North Equatorial Belt and North Tropical Zone

Jupiter's North Equatorial Belt and North Tropical Zone
Jupiter's North Equatorial Belt and North Tropical Zone This is a nine frame Voyager 1 mosaic focusing primarily on Jupiter's North Equatorial Belt (NEB), the North Tropical Zone (NTrZ) and their turbulent boundary. A jet stream is visible in central NTrZ, and examples of the NEB plumes are also visible. Gravity waves can be seen below and to the right of center. The images in this mosaic were acquired from a range of ~2.4 million kilometers from Jupiter's center at a resolution of ~24 km/pixel. Color, contrast, and sharpness have been enhanced to better show various details. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Björn Jónsson
