Fig. 4.5. A Galileo Spacecraft Image of an Equatorial Hotspot on Jupiter. These spacecraft images cover an area 34,000 km by 1 1,000 km. The top mosaic combines the violet and near-infrared continuum filter images to create an image similar to how Jupiter would appear to human eyes. The bottom mosaic used galileo's three near-infrared wavelengths (displayed in red, green, and blue) to show variations in cloud height and thickness. Bluish clouds are high and thin, reddish clouds are low, and white clouds are high and thick. The dark blue hotspot in the center is a hole in the deep cloud with an overlying thin haze. North is to the top. (Credit: Courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech).
