Range :  4.0 million km. ( 2.5 million miles ) This brown oval, located between Jupiter's 13 and 18 degree N latitude, may be an opening in the upper cloud deck. It was a selected target to be photographed by Voyager I on its closest approach to Jupiter because, if observed at high resolution, could provide information on deeper, warmer cloud levels.  Above the oval, is the pale orange North Temperate Belt, bounded on the south by the North Temperate Current, with winds of 120 meters/sec. ( 260 Mi./hr ). The smallest resolvable features from this photograph is 75 km ( 45 miles ) wide. ARC-1979-AC79-7005

P-21747 C Range: 2,200,000 miles This image shows a region of the Jovian atmosphere from approximately 25° N to the equatorial region. The north temperate jet, at approximately 23° N, where the wind speed is about 150 meters per second, is seen as a dark brown line from the left-hand edge to the right-hand corner of the picture. The wispy clouds of the north equatorial belt appear as shades of brown. The lower right-hand corner of the image shows the brighter (white) clouds of the equatorial region. A small blue area is apparent near the lower edge, which corresponds to a region free of the upper clouds, where it is possible to penetrate to cloud layers approximately 60 kilometers below the visible surface.

Range :  12.9 million km. ( 8.0 million miles ) P-29467B/W Time lapse Voyager 2 images of Uranus show the movement of two small, bright, streaky clouds, the first such features ever seen on the planet. The clouds were detected in this series of orange filtered images, over a 4.6 hour interval ( from top to bottom ). Uranus, which is tipped on its side with respect to the other planets, is rotating in a counter-clockwise direction, with its pole of rotation near the center of the disk, as are the two clouds seen here as bright streaks. The larger of the two clouds is ata lattitude of 33 degrees. The smaller cloud, seen faintly in the three lower images, lies at 26 degrees ( a lower alttitude and hence closer to the limb). Their counterclockwise periods of rotation are 16.2 and 16.9 hours, respectively. This difference implies that the lower lattitude feature is lagging behind the higher latitude feture at a speed of almost 100 meters pers second (220 mph). Latitudinal bands are also visible in these images, the faint bands, more numerous now then in previous Voyager images from longer range, are concentric with the pole rotation. thatis, they circle the planet in lines of contant latitude.

P-29514 BW Miranda reveals a complex geologic history in this view acquired by Voyager 2 around its closest approach to the Uranian moon. At least three terrain types of different age and geologic style are evident at this resolution of about 700 meters (2,300 feet). Visible in this clear-filter, narrow-angle image are from left: 1) an apparently ancient, cratered terrain consisting of rolling, subdued hills and degraded medium-sized craters; 2) a grooved terrain with linear valleys and ridges developed at the expense of, or replacing, the first terrain type; and 3) a complex terrain seen along the terminator, in which intersecting curvillinear ridges and troughs are abrubtly truncated by the linear, grooved terrain. Voyager scientists believe this third terrain type is intermediate in age between the first two. ARC-1986-A86-7030

P-29515 BW Range: 42,000 kilometers (26,000 miles) This image of Miranda, obtained by Voyager 2 on approach, shows an unusual 'chevron' figure and regions of distinctly differing terrain on the Uranian moon. Grooved areas baring light and dark bands, distinct from other areas of mottled terrain, are visible at this resolution of about 600 meters (2,000 feet). The bright V-shaped feature in the grooved areas is the 'cheron' observed in earlier, lower-resolution images. Cutting across the bands are sinuous scarps, probably faults. Superimposed on both types of terrain are many bowl-shaped impact craters less than 5 km (3 mi) wide. The entire picture spans an area about 220 km (140 mi) across. ARC-1986-A86-7031

P-29512 BW Range: 36,000 kilometers (22,000 miles) Miranda, innermost of Uranus' large satellites, is seen at close range as part of a Voyager 2 high-resolution mosaicking sequence. This clear-filter, narrow-angle image shows an area about 250 km (150 mi) across, at a resolution of about 800 meters (2,600 feet). Two distinct terrain types are visible; a rugged, higher-elevation terrain (right) and a lower, striated terrain. Numerous craters on the rugged, higher terain indicate that it is older than the lower terrain. Several scarps, probably faults, cut the different terrains. The impact crater in the lower part of this image is about 25 km (15 mi) across. ARC-1986-A86-7028

P-29513 BW Range: 31,000 kilometers (19,000 miles) This Voyager 2 image of Miranda was taken shortly before the spacecraft's closet approach to the Uranian moon.The high resolution of 600 meters (2,000 feet) reveals a bewildering variety of fractures, grooves and craters, as well as features of different albedos (reflectances). This clear-filter, narrow-angle view encompasses areas of older, heavily cratered terrain with a wide variety of forms. The grooves and troughs reach depths of a few kilometers and expose materials of different albedos. The great variety of directions of fracture and troughs, and the different densities of impact craters on them, signify a long, complex geologic evolution of this satellite. ARC-1986-A86-7029

Range :  12 million km (7.5 million miles) Resolution 110 km (68 miles) per pixel. These 2 images of Neptune were taken by Voyager 2's narrow-angle camera.  During the 17.6 hours between the left and right images, the Great Dark Spot, at 22 degrees south latitude (left of center), has completed a little less than one rotation of Neptune.  The smaller dark spot, at 54 south, completed a little more than one rotation, as can be seen by comparing its relative positions in the two pictures.  The Great Dark Spot and the smaller spot have a relative velocity of 100 meters per second (220 miles an hour).  The light and dark bands circling Neptune indicate predominantly zonal (east-west) motion.  The diffuse white feature north of the Great Dark Spot is near Neptune's equator, and rotates with about the same period as the Great Dark Spot.  Streak of bright clouds at the south edge, and just east of the Great Dark Spot, are its constatnt companions, and change the details of their appearance, often within a few hours.  Changing brightness of the cloud streaks could be a result of vertical mortions. ARC-1989-A89-7006

Range :  40,000 km (24,8000 mi.) This picture of Triton is a mosaic of the highest resolution images taken by Voyager 2.  The mosaic is superimposed on the lower-resolution mapping images taken about 2 hours earlier in order to fill in gaps between high-resolution images.  The smallest features that can be seen on the images are about 0.8 km (0.5 mi.) across.  The terminator (line separation day and night) is at the top of the picture and is centered at about 30 degrees north latitude and 330 degrees longitude.  These highest-resolution images were targeted for the terminator region to show details of the topography by the shadows it casts.  Near the center of the picture is a depression filled with smooth plains that are probably ices which were once erupted in a fluid state.  The depth of the depression is about 300 meters (900 feet) and the prominent fresh impact crater on its floor is about 20 km (12 mi.) in diameter and about 1 km (0.6 mi.) deep.  On the right is a elongate crater with adjacent dark deposits about it.  This feature may be an explosive eruption vent formed by gaps within the ice.  The linear structure on the lest is probably a fracture along which fresh ice has been extruded. ARC-1989-A89-7063

Voyager II Imagery, Neptune: This is one of the most detailed views of the surface of Triton taken by Voyager 2 on its flyby of the large satellite of Neptune early in the morning of August 25, 1989. The picture was stored on the tape recorder and relayed to Earth later. Taken from a distanT ce of only 40,000 km (25, 000 miles), the frame is about 220 kilometers (140 miles) across and shows details as small as 750 meters (0.5 miles). Most of the area is covered by a peculiar landscape of roughly circular depressions separated  by rugged ridges. This type of terrain, which covers large tracts of Triton's northern hemisphere, is unlike anything seen elsewhere in the solar system. The depressions are probably not impact craters: They are too similar in size and too regularly spaced. Their origin is still unknown, but may involve local melting and collapse of the icy surface. A conspicuous set of grooves and ridges cuts across the landscape, indicating fracturing and deformation of Triton's surface. The rarity of impact craters suggests a young surface by solar-system standards, probably less than a few billion years old. The Voyager Mission is conducted by JPL for NASA's Office of Space Science and Applications.  (JPL ref: P-34722 Voyager N-60 ) ARC-1989-AC89-7055

After traveling more than 1.5 billion km (948 million mi.), the Magellan spacecraft was inserted into orbit around Venus on Aug. 10, 1990.  This mosaic consists of adjacent pieces of two magellan image strips obtained in the first radar test.  The radar test was part of a planned In-Orbit Checkout sequence designed to prepare the magellan spacecraft and radar to begin mapping after Aug. 31.  The strip on the left was returned to the Goldstone Deep Space Network station in California; the strip to the right was received at the DSN in Canberra, Australia.  A third station that will be receiving Magellan data is locaterd near Madrid, Spain.  Each image strip is 20 km (12 mi.) wide and 16,000 km (10,000 mi.) long.  This mosaic is a small portion 80 km (50 mi.) long.  This image is centered at 21 degrees north latitude and 286.8 degrees east longitude, southeast of a volcanic highland region called Beta Regio.  The resolution of the image is about 120 meters (400 feet), 10 times better than revious images of the same area of Venus, revealing many new geologic features.  The bright line trending northwest-southeast across the center of the image is a fracture or fault zone cutting the volcanic plains.  In the upper lest corner of the image, a multiple-ring circular feature of probable volcanic origin can be seen,  approx. 4.27 km (2.65 mi.) across.  The bright and dark variations seen in the plains surrounding these features correspond to volcanic lava flows of varying ages.  The volcanic lava flows in the southern half of the image have been cut by north-south trending faults.  This area is similar geologically to volcanic deposits seen on Earth at Hawaii and the Snake River Plains in Idaho. ARC-1990-A90-3000

This portion of a Magellan radar image strip shows a small region on Venus 20 km (12.4 mi.) wide and 75 km (50 mi.) long on the east flank of a major volcanic upland called Beta Regio.  The image is centerd at 23 degrees north latitude and 286.7 degrees east longitude.  The ridge and valley networkin the middle part of the image is formed by intersection faults which have broken the Venusian crust into a clomplex, deformed type of surface called tessera, the Latin word for tile.  The parallel  mountains and valleys resemble the Basin and Range Province in the western United States.  The irregular dark patch near the top of the image is a smooth surface, probably formed by lava flows in a region about 10 km (6 mi.) across.  Similar dark surfaces within the valleys indicate lava flows that are younger than the tessera giving an indication of the geologic time relationships of the events that formed the present surface.  The image has a resolution of 120 meters (400 feet). ARC-1990-A90-3001

Two mosaicked pieces of Magellan image strips display the area east of the Rhea Mons volcano on Venus.  This image is centered at about 32.5 degrees north latitude and 286.6 degrees east longitude.  The mosaic is 47 km (28 mi.) wide and 135 km (81 mi.) long.  This region has been previously identified as 'tessera'from Earth-based radar (Arecibo) images.  The center of the image is dominated by a network of intersection ridges and valleys.  The radar-bright north-south trending features in this image range from 1 km (0.6 mi.) to 3 km (1.8 mi.) in length.  The average spacing between these ridges is about 1.5 km (0.9 mi.).  The dark patches at the top of the image are smooth surfaces and may be lava flows located in lowlands between the higher ridge and the valley terrain.  This image is a mosaic of two orbits obtained in the first Magellan stations near Goldstone, CA and Canberra, Australia.  The resolution of this image is approx. 120 meters (400 feet).

This Magellan image mosaic shows the impact crater Golubkina, first identified in Soviet Venera 15/16 data.  The crater is names after Anna Golubkina (1864-1927), a Soviet sculptor.  The crater is about 34 km (20.4 mi.) across, similar to the size of the West Clearwater impact structure in Canada.  The crater Golubkina is located at about 60.5 degrees north latitude, 286.7 degrees est longitude.  Magellan data reveal that Golubkina has many characteristics typical of craters formed by a mereorite impact including terraced inner walls, a central peak, and radar-bright rough ejecta surrounding the crater.  The extreme darkness of the crater floor indicates a smooth surface, perhaps formed by the ponding of lava flows in the crater floor as seen in may lunar impact craters.  The radar-bright ejecta surrounding the crater indicates a relatively fresh or young crater.  Craters with centeral peaks in the Soviet data range in size from about 10-60 km (6-36 mi.) across.  The largest crater identifed in the Soviet Venera data is 140 km (84 mi) in diameter.  This Magellan image strip in approx. 100 km (62 mi.) long.  The image is a mosaic of two orbits obtained in the first Magellan radar test and played back to Earth to the Deep Space Network stations near Goldstone, CA and Canberra, Australia, respectively.  The resolution of this image is approximately 120 meters (400 feet).  The see-saw margins result from the offset of individual radar frames obtained along the orbit.

This data was acquired by the NASA C-130B Earth Resources Survey aircraft flying at 6,000 ft. mean sea level at 10:26 a. m. on October 21, 1991. The sensor used was the NS001 Thermatic Mapper Simulator, with a ground resolution of 4.6 meters (15ft). The image area is 4.7 x 3.2 km (2.9 x 2 mi.). The area covered is the Oakland Berkeley Hills near the Caldecott Tunnel (Upper right). Targets over 600 degrees centrigrade are shown as yellow in this composite of three infrared bands (11.6, 2.3, & 1.6 microns). A large condominium complex at the upper right is completely consumed. Areas already burned off sow as pale red. The blue clouds at left are condensed water vapor within the smoke plume, which blocks the infrared wavelength; the smoke itself is transparent.   Many hundreds of individual structures can be seen either actively burning or as heat of smouldering debris. ARC-1991-AC91-0610-1

This image is the first full picture showing both asteroid 243 Ida and its newly discovered moon to be transmitted to Earth from NASA's Galileo spacecraft--the first conclusive evidence that natural satellites of asteroids exist.  Ida is the large object to the left, about 56 kilometers (35 miles long).  Ida's natural satellite is the small object to the right.  This portrait was taken by Galileo's charge-coupled device (CCD) camera on August 28, 1993, about 14 minutes before the spacecraft's closest approach to the asteriod, from a range of 10,870 kilometers (6,755 miles).  Ida is a heavily cratered, irregularly shaped asteroid in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter-- the 243rd asteroid to be discovered since the first one was found at the beginning of the 19th century.  It is a member of a group of asteroids called the Koronis family.  The small satellite, which is about 1.5 kilometers (1 mile) across in this view, has yet to be given a name by astronomers.  It has been provisionally designated '1993 (243) 1' by the International Astronomical Union.  (The numbers denote the year the picture was taken, the asteroid number and the fact that it is the first moon of Ida to be found.)  ALthough the satellite appears to be 'next' to Ida it is actually slightly in the foreground, closer to the spacecraft than Ida.  Combining this image with data from Galileo's near-infrared mapping spectrometer, the science team estimates that the object is about 100 kilometers (60 miles) away from the center of Ida.  This image is one of a six-frame series taken through different color filters, this one in green.  The spatial resolution in this image is about 100 meters (330 feet) per pixel.  The Galileo spacecraft flew past Ida en route to its final destination, Jupiter, where it will go into orbit in December 1995.  The Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the galileo Project for NASA's Office of Space Science. (JPL ref. No. P-43731) ARC-1994-A91-2018
