Galileo Jovian Ring Data
Two instruments on the Galileo Spacecraft acquired data on Jupiter’s Ring
- 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.

While the PDS Imaging Node is the primary
repository for all Galileo SSI and NIMS data, the Ring-Moon Systems 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
