A lower limit on the top of Jupiter's haze layerRemote sensing observations of the Jovian atmosphere at wavelengths ranging from UV to the IR are affected by the presence of haze layers above the visible clouds. These layers are difficult to detect as they generally contain submicron particles. In the present paper, a sequence of Voyager images of high-latitude haze, which extends through the Jovian stratosphere into the mesosphere is presented and discussed.
