Spiffy Pic



Here's the story:
This image provided by NASA and taken by the New Horizons Long Range Reconnaissance Imager shows a 4-millisecond exposure of Jupiter and two of its moons on January 17, 2007.
The spacecraft was 68.5 million kilometers (42.5 million miles) from Jupiter, closing in on the giant planet at 41,500 miles (66,790 kilometers) per hour.
The volcanic moon Io is the closest planet to the right of Jupiter; the icy moon Ganymede is to Io's right.
The shadows of each satellite are visible atop Jupiter's clouds; Ganymede's shadow is draped over Jupiter's northwestern limb. (AP Photo/NASA)
