The Big Picture: 16 great views of Jupiter

The glorious planet Jupiter is back in the news again: the less than a year old "Baby Red Spot" in Jupiter's atmosphere was consumed by the better-known "Great Red Spot" over the course of three months earlier this year. My local paper - The Boston Globe - thought this would be a good occasion to showcase some of the best imagery of Jupiter and its moons available for their "The Big Picture (News stories in photographs)" feature. I agree - some of these images are stunning.

Update: Trivia question! If I said to you, "All these worlds are yours, except Europa. Attempt no landing there." You'd say to me ... ???

And the colors are so great! I only wish we could see as many colors as the camera that captured those images.

What a cool idea, Chris A. I never would have thought of it that way.

Ahhh I saw those pictures yesterday. They are fascinating. I especially enjoy the volcanoes on Io that erupt for hundreds of miles above the surface. It's amazing how far it can go with such little gravity. Simply Amazing!
