Galileo Jovian Ring Data.

Two instruments on the Galileo Spacecraft acquired data on Jupiter’s Ring System.

  • The Solid State Imager (SSI) obtained high-resolution images at visual and infrared wavelengths.
  • The Near-Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (NIMS) obtained multi-spectral images at wavelengths from 0.7 to 5.2 microns.

Finding Galileo Data

  • **Use OPUS to search for specific Galileo SSI data products using a wide range of criteria. **

While the PDS Imaging Node is the primary repository for all Galileo SSI and NIMS data, the Rings Node maintains subsets of the data obtained by these two instruments, including all of the Jovian Ring observatons. Pages of browse images of the Galileo ring observations are provided below.
