The Planet Jupiter from the FIU campus


Image of Jupiter taken on June 14, 2017 with the FIU 24-inch telescope by Riya Gandhi. Over 175 images were made in four filters. She reduced the images and then selected the best ones in each filter and stacked them. Then the different colored filters were combined to make this full color image of the largest planet in our solar system: The Planet Jupiter. The two small moons are Callisto and Ganymede.
