Animation of a rotating globe of Jupiter's moon Ganymede, with a geologic map superimposed over a global color mosaic. The 37-second animation begins as a global color mosaic image of the moon then quickly fades in the geologic map.

The views incorporate the best available imagery from NASA's Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft and NASA's Galileo spacecraft.
