Striking atmospheric features in Jupiter’s northern hemisphere are captured in this series of color-enhanced images from NASA’s Juno spacecraft.

An anticyclonic white oval, called N5-AWO, can be seen at center left of the first image (at far left) and appears slightly higher in the second and third images. A tempest known as the Little Red Spot is visible near the bottom of the second and third images. The reddish-orange band that is prominently displayed in the fourth and fifth images is the North North Temperate Belt.

From left to right, this sequence of images was taken between 9:54 p.m. and 10:11 p.m. PDT on July 15 (12:54 a.m. and 1:11 a.m. EDT on July 16), as the spacecraft performed its 14th close flyby of Jupiter. At the time, Juno’s altitude ranged from about 15,700 to 3,900 miles (25,300 to 6,200 kilometers) from the planet's cloud tops, above a latitude of approximately 69 to 36 degrees.

Citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran created this image using data from the spacecraft’s JunoCam imager.

JunoCam is the "citizen science" camera on board Juno. As the spacecraft orbits Jupiter, JunoCam snaps pictures of the planet from different angles and radial distances, targeting features identified in part through the collaborative efforts of the amateur astronomer community. JunoCam’s imagery is sent back to Earth and posted to the Mission Juno website, where the general public may download them for subsequent image processing. The images processed by these citizen scientists are returned to the Mission Juno website and range from detailed scientific imagery and analyses to beautiful works of space-themed art.
"The idea that you can couple our scientific imaging and understanding of the planet, with artistic representations of not only what the planet means but what exploration means, has been very valuable to the mission– and to the public."

Juno Engineering: Precision Matters

The Juno spacecraft posed extreme design challenges for the engineers. Juno would be the first solar-powered spacecraft to operate so far from the Sun. It traveled through magnetic fields 20 times stronger than any previous spacecraft. It operates deep within Jupiter’s hazardous radiation belts. The Juno team had to be very strategic about protecting Juno’s “vital organs” and sensitive science instruments from the elements, ensuring that the spacecraft would survive launch and the harsh environment once inserted into orbit about Jupiter. And no matter how much planning and testing is done, contingency plans are always necessary to cope with uncertainties.
"Juno went from proposal to launch in about five or six years and that seems like a really long time but most of the little steps in between always feel really rushed. There’s never enough time to do something that’s never been done before."
