More Images of Jupiter
X-ray/UV/Optical Composite
This composite image displays X-ray data from Chandra (magenta) and ultraviolet data Hubble Space Telescope (blue) overlaid on an optical image of Jupiter. While Chandra observed Jupiter for an entire 10-hour rotation period on December 18, 2000, this image shows a 'snapshot' of a single 45-minute X-ray pulse.

X-ray/UV/Optical Composite With Pull-Out Box
This version of the composite highlights the features observed by Chandra and Hubble in Jupiter's northern pole.

Animation of Chandra Data
This animation shows the X-ray data over the 10-hour rotation period, which Chandra observed. The brightness of the X-rays is shown in units of rayleighs.

Chandra image of Jupiter in Alternate Color Scheme
This Chandra image shows X-ray intensity in the units of rayleighs. The observation lasted 10 hours, which was obtained on December 18, 2000, and each X-ray photon has been smeared by double the 0.4 arcsecond full-width half-maximum point-spread-function of the High Resolution Camera.
