This image of Adrastea was taken 5 minutes earlier than the previous image. The exposure time was 96 seconds. The faint band is the Jovian ring and is smeared because of parallax and spacecraft motion. Adrastea is the bright line in the lower right. A star can be seen as a line in the upper left. Notice the difference in length and direction of the two lines. This image was used to verify that the spot in the previous image was indeed a satellite of Jupiter.
