Scientists produced new global maps of Jupiter using the Wide Field Camera 3 on NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. One color map is shown here, projected onto a globe and as a flat image.

Hubble's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 3 (WFPC3) was developed jointly by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland; the Space Telescope Science Institute, Baltimore, Maryland; and Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corporation, Boulder, Colorado.
