Gallery: Imaging Jupiter

On March 15, 2016, over a span of 5 hours, DSCOVR EPIC imaged Jupiter. This activity was done for purposes of instrument characterization, but also provides a unique view of our solar system's largest planet and its moons. Because of the long time span and the techniques required to do the imaging, it was not possible to do regular color images. Instead, the color information was extracted from the relevant bands and applied to the 443nm (blue) channel in order to provide the colorized rendition. Below is the labeled version of the colorized 443nm band, the original 443nm band, and the unlabeled colorized 443nm band.
