OSIRIS-REx PolyCam view of Jupiter and 3 moons
OSIRIS-REx PolyCam view of Jupiter and 3 moons On Feb. 12, 2017, OSIRIS-REx’s PolyCam imager captured this image of Jupiter (center) and three of its moons, Callisto (left), Io, and Ganymede. The image was taken when the spacecraft was 122 million kilometers from Earth and 673 million kilometers from Jupiter. NASA / GSFC / University of Arizona

This image was produced by taking two copies of the same image, adjusting the brightness of Jupiter separately from the significantly dimmer moons, and compositing them back together so that all four objects are visible in the same frame.
