This image of Adrastea was taken by Galileo's solid state imaging system between November 1996 and June 1997. Although Adrastea was discovered by Voyager, it was no more than a point of light on images. Adrastea orbits Jupiter in the zone between the planet's ring and the larger Galilean satellites. The longest dimension of Adrastea is approximately 20 kilometers (12 miles) across.
