In late October, 1991, Galileo headed back toward Earth for one final slingshot maneuver before her long voyage toward her ultimate goal: Jupiter. Almost two years after her last Earth encounter, and three years after launch, Galileo flew by Earth and took some dramatic photos. Click on the Earth in the navigation chart below to see Galileo's departing shots of  Earth.
