It’s time once again for another Where In The Universe Challenge. Test your visual knowledge of the cosmos by naming where in the Universe this image was taken and give yourself extra points if you can name the spacecraft responsible for this picture. Post your guesses in the comments section, and check back later at this same post to find the answer. To make this challenge fun for everyone, please don’t include links or extensive explanations with your answer. Good luck!
UPDATE: The answer has now been posted below.
This is a false color picture of Callisto, taken by Voyager 2 on July 7, 1979 from about 1,094,666 kilometers (677,000 miles) away. The surface of Callisto is the most heavily battered and cratered of the Jupiter’s moons and resembles ancient heavily cratered terrains on the Moon, Mercury and Mars. The bright areas are ejecta thrown out by relatively young impact craters. A large ringed structure, probably an impact basin, is shown in the upper left part of the picture.
How’d you do?
Check back next week for another WITU Challenge!
