Ganymede, 2003

This image could be an enchanting turquoise sea full of exotic brown fish, punctuated by flickers of golden light, or a mysterious night-fishing map. Washy blue sections modulate to light green, while brown gives way to lilac purple. It’s in fact a geologic map of Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon. Its icy surface has been formed through a variety of impact cratering, tectonic, and possibly cryovolcanic processes.
