This image of Jupiter’s rings was taken by Voyager 2 looking back towards Jupiter from inside its shadow one day after its flyby. The thin jovian ring makes up the two orange lines to the left of the image. The blue and red arc is the limb of Jupiter, backlit by the Sun. The lower ring is cut short by Jupiter’s shadow. The image was produced from two images taken through the orange and violet filters from a distance of almost 1.5 million km.
