Clouds

An image from the Galileo probe dated 4 February 1990. A wide-band spatial filter has been applied to accentuate the smaller details. Blue tones were used to highlight the subtle contrasts in the centre of the clouds, and to remind viewers that the image was taken using a violet filter.

The sulphuric acid clouds show a significant dynamo in the equatorial band of the planet, with a movement towards the left (west).
