Jupiter, the largest planet in our system is the closest of our gas giant neighbors. Gas giants Saturn, Uranus and Neptune would be included in that group. This shot also includes one of Jupiter's moons Io. The Cassini Spacecraft took these shots on a slow flyby on its way to the Saturn System. Collected data did not reveal new data about the planet. Voyager 1 and 2 did a good job of gathering data back in the '80's.
