that can not be from the sun?

Jupiter has an enormous magnetic field that traps particle radiation from the Sun.

and they say in the first vid that they use titanium to shiled from it.
I did not think titanium could shiled from radiation?

Anything with mass can be a radiation shield. Even butter, though you would need more of it than you would titanium.

Planetary Science has GOT to be the best job in the world.

You could also trap particles with a magnetic field.

Looks like oil on canvas

Perhaps, but it's a picture painted by nature and physics.

What, in your opinion, a real photo of Jupiter should look like?

Crying "fake!" at anything is easy; specifying why it looks fake, and specifying what the real deal should look like, is the hard part.

Silly as it is (I'm being polite), I can see why some might be disappointed and/or scream fake. It just looks a bit blurry and washed out. Which begs the question, if nasa were indeed faking these images...why would they release such a "bad" one. Makes no sense.

Either way ..I think the image is very atmospheric and beautiful and at an angle we very rarely see.

More to come soon I hope.

As always, the industrious folk at the Unmanned Spaceflight Forum are working with the raw image data released by the mission to create some nice pictures:

The "Marble Movie" is a bit more complete now:

NASA update with new images:

Turns out, Jupiter is a lot bluer at the poles, same as with Saturn. It's all that hydrogen we're seeing.

Not sure where to post Juno's images anymore, as there are several threads going around about that topic. But I think I'll stick with this one.

Some new images from amateurs that worked with JunoCam data:

Jupiter's south pole:

Processing: Elisabetta Bonora & Marco Faccin / some additional colour balancing by me

Gosh. Those swirling patterns are absolitely stunning

Slightly off topic, very slightly

Nasa actually allow any of they images taken from space (other than the ones featuring people ) to be used freely by the public, even commercially. Which is damn generous of them.

Very very generous of them IMO

I'm gobsmacked by the cloud detail. Everywhere you look, you just see depth to the detail.

These images definitely show us a side of Jupiter we have never seen before

Hey, I'm all for dropping this thread If there is another one. You are doing most of the posting wildspace, I'll let you decide where to post from now on. But as I said, happy to move to the other threads

Thanks for the images mate

Juno was scheduled to fire its engines on Oct. 19 and reduce its orbit to every 14 days. Because of a problem with the engine valves, the Juno team has delayed that engine firing until the issue can be diagnosed. Juno is still able to complete its science mission if it stays in the 53-day orbit., Oct. 20, 2016 - Jupiter's Stripes Go Deep, and Other Surprises from Juno Probe.

NASA’s Juno spacecraft entered safe mode Tuesday, Oct. 18 at about 10:47 p.m. PDT (Oct. 19 at 1:47 a.m. EDT). Early indications are a software performance monitor induced a reboot of the spacecraft’s onboard computer. The spacecraft acted as expected during the transition into safe mode, restarted successfully and is healthy. High-rate data has been restored, and the spacecraft is conducting flight software diagnostics. All instruments are off, and the planned science data collection for today’s close flyby of Jupiter (perijove 2), did not occur., Juno, Oct. 19, 2016 - Juno Spacecraft in Safe Mode for Latest Jupiter Flyby.

While investigating the valve issue (its motion was slow) there was another glitch that caused the probe to go into safe mode then reboot right when it was supposed to be having another close encounter with Jupiter (i.e., no photos). Huh.

The article has some really cool photos from the microwave imager showing (in composite) a few hundred miles of cloud layer!

So, co-winky-dink or does that monolith really not like its picture being taken?!
