SP-349/396 PIONEER ODYSSEY

Figure 6-7. The bow shock and the magnetosphere of Jupiter are mapped by Pioneer 10 and 11 and shown to be vastly more extensive than those of the Earth. The shock wave and the magnetosphere vary in distance from Jupiter proportionally much more than do those of Earth. Jupiter's magnetic tail extends beyond the orbit of Saturn.
