Europa Global Views in Natural and Enhanced Colors
8 May 1998

This color composite view combines violet, green, and infrared images of Jupiter’s intriguing moon, Europa, for a view of the moon in natural color (left) and in enhanced color designed to bring out subtle color differences in the surface (right).

The bright white and bluish part of Europa’s surface is composed mostly of water ice, with very few non-ice materials.

In contrast, the brownish mottled regions on the right side of the image may be covered by hydrated salts and an unknown red component.

The yellowish mottled terrain on the left side of the image is caused by some other unknown component.

Long, dark lines are fractures in the crust, some of which are more than 3,000 kilometers (1,850 miles) long.
