Details from a part of image PJ3_114. This is an approximately true color/contrast image that has been enlarged by a factor of 3 relative to the original, raw image data. The image shows Jupiter's horizon near the evening terminator. Jupiter's bright and blue evening sky is clearly visible at the limb. In the right half of the image there are also possible hints of a slightly more reddish color at lower altitudes than the blue color. This is probably a real feature although a processing artifact cannot be completely ruled out.
