Juno sends first-ever image of Jupiter and its moons
Jul 13, 2016

NASA’s Juno spacecraft has sent the first-ever image of the gas giant Jupiter and three of its four moons to the Earth as it continues orbiting the planet.

The first high-resolution images of the planet will be taken on August 27 when Juno makes its next close pass to Jupiter.

During its mission, Juno will circle the Jovian world 37 times, soaring low over the planet’s cloud tops — as close as about 4,100 km.

During these fly-bys, Juno will probe beneath the obscuring cloud cover of Jupiter and study its auroras to learn more about the planet’s origins, structure, atmosphere and magnetosphere.
