When the Cassini mission flew by the planet Jupiter in late 2000, a sequence of full disk images were taken of the planet. Assembled with proper spatial and temporal registration, the sequence could produce fourteen distinct images suitable for wrapping around a sphere.

These images from NASA's Juno Craft show Jupiter in
amazing detail. NASA provided these images of Jupiter's cloud covered atmosphere taken by the Juno Probe.
