PIA01079: Callisto's Southern Hemisphere as Viewed by NIMS & SSI

Callisto’s Southern Hemisphere as Viewed by NIMS & SSI


Callisto's southern hemisphere was "imaged" by both the Near Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (NIMS) and the Solid State Imaging (SSI) instrument during Galileo's eighth orbit of Jupiter. The data from the two instruments has been mosaiced to produce this unique view. Related releases and detailed captions are available for the NIMS and SSI products.
