This is the front of the QSL card from the Voyager 1 Encounter with Jupiter. The card has a fold down the middle so it reduces to a standard size QSL card. The exaggerated colors in this view of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot and cloud pattern details enhance subtle variations in both color and brightness.
