SUMMARY: Cassini took many photographs of Jupiter on the way to Saturn, including this unusual montage of its southern pole. This photograph was made up of 36 separate images, stitched together on computer. The planet looks strange because the photo is a polar stereographic projections, which shows the southern pole in the middle, and the equator at the edges. The original images were captured on December 11th and 12th, 2000.

On topic, this is a very unusual and fascinating image indeed! (I remember Saturn's pole featured a dark spot too)

So, both Cassini and Pioneer 11 have observed the Jovian polar regions. I suspected the Saturn probe preformed such a feat, but wasn't too sure.
A facinating perspective!
