Details of Jupiter's Atmosphere from 4.3 million km

Jupiter
This image of Jupiter was taken from 4.3 million km on March 1, 1979, four days before Voyager 1's closest approach on its flyby of Jupiter. The edge of the Great Red Spot can be seen at the upper left. Just below it at center left is one of the large white ovals. Details as small as 100 km can be resolved in the image. The white oval is roughly 6000 km from top to bottom, north is at about 11:00 (Voyager 1, P-21184)
