Jupiter rotates on its axis every 9 hours and 55 minutes. This view from space is based on data from the NASA Voyager and Galileo missions.
Galileo was an international mission of the United States and Germany.
It arrived at Jupiter in December 1995 after a six year journey from Earth.
Galileo studied the planet and its satellites until September, 2003, when it was intentionally
sent into Jupiter's atmosphere.
