At the time the image was taken, the spacecraft was about 17,098 miles from the cloud tops of the planet. Closer to the planet, the Galilean moon of Io can be seen. In the distance (to the left), another on of Jupiter’s Galilean moons, Europa, is visible. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/SwRI/MSSS/Roman Tkachenko
