Baker, A.L., L.R. Baker, E. Beshore, C. Blenman, N.D. Castillo, Y.-P. Chen, L.R. Doose, J.P. Elston, J.W. Fountain, and D.L. Coffeen, 1975: The imaging photopolarimeter experiment on Pioneer 11. Science, 188, 468-472, doi:10.1126/science.188.4187.468.

For 2 weeks continuous imaging, photometry, and polarimetry observations were made of Jupiter and the Galilean satellites in red and blue light from Pioneer 11. Measurements of Jupiter's north and south polar regions were possible because the spacecraft trajectory was highly inclined to the planet's equatorial plane. One of the highest resolution images obtained is presented here along with a comparison of a sample of our photometric and polarimetric data with a simple model. The data seem consistent with increased molecular scattering at high latitudes.
