During its 14-year odyssey, the NASA spacecraft Galileo took thousands of images. In addition to extensively photographing the Jovian system, Galileo also turned its cameras on asteroids, Venus, Earth, and its Moon. Galileo also captured the only direct view of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 fragments smashing into Jupiter in July 1994. This image gallery is separated by the various planets and moons visited by Galileo (Jupiter, Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto, Earth & Moon, Venus, Asteroids, and Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9) as well as the geographical and atmospheric features of the visited objects (Atmospheric Haze, Topography, Volcanic Features, Aurora, Great Red Spot, Lightning, White Ovals) and collected data from its instruments (Hot Spots, Temperature Data, and Cloud Height Data). It provides a wealth of images for either the casual viewer or the instructor seeking images that display particular phenomena.
