Jupiter Globe

This true-color simulated view of Jupiter is composed of four images taken by NASA's Cassini spacecraft. To illustrate what Jupiter would have looked like if the cameras had a field-of-view large enough to capture the entire planet, the cylindrical map was projected onto a globe. The resolution is about 144 kilometers (89 miles) per pixel. Jupiter's moon Europa is casting the shadow on the planet.
