Title: Antarctica - Ross Ice Shelf

Source: Galileo

Information: This color picture of Antarctica is one part of a mosaic of pictures covering the entire polar continent taken during the hours following Galileo's historic first encounter with its home planet. The view shows the Ross Ice Shelf to the right and its border with the sea. An occasional mountain can be seen poking through the ice near the McMurdo Station. This picture was taken at about 6:20 p.m. PST on December 8, 1990. From top to bottom, the frame looks across about half of Antarctica.
