Jupiter Map - Annotated

False colour cylindrical map of Jupiter, constructed from a set of images of the planet obtained with the WFPC2 on the Hubble Space Telescope. Individual frames were obtained on 9 May and 10 May, 2008. The images were deprojected and mosaiced together. The map shows latitudes between +/-70 deg. The resolution is a quarter degree in latitude and longitude. Images were combined at 673, 502, and 410 nm, as red, green, and blue colours.
