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 theNIMS andSSI products.
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA manages the Galileo mission for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington, DC. JPL is an operating division of California Institute of Technology (Caltech).
