Juno Probe Captures Amazing Images of Jupiter's Poles



High Res @ NASA





NASA shared more details from the Juno mission on Thursday.


This is showing Jupiter's South Pole. These are cyclones shown in enhanced color.
Nothing short of awe inspiring. Love this, can't wait to see more.

More about the Mission:


NASA's Juno mission, led by Southwest Research Institute's Dr. Scott Bolton, is rewriting what scientists thought they knew about Jupiter specifically, and gas giants in general, according to a pair of Science papers released today. The Juno spacecraft has been in orbit around Jupiter since July 2016, passing within 3,000 miles of the equatorial cloudtops.

"What we've learned so far is earth-shattering. Or should I say, Jupiter-shattering," said Bolton, Juno's principal investigator. "Discoveries about its core, composition, magnetosphere, and poles are as stunning as the photographs the mission is generating." Read more at: phys.org...

Here's an animation of the latest fly-by, using JunoCam images: www.youtube.com...



On May 19, 2017, NASA's Juno spacecraft performed her "Perijove 06" flyby at Jupiter. Due to good contact with Earth during this phase of the mission, several JunoCam images of good quality could be taken and sent back to Earth, despite JunoCam's memory limitations.
These images provided an excellent basis to create textures for a flyby animation. SPICE trajectory data allowed to reconstruct approximately Jupiter's appearance for each point along Juno's trajectory during the flyby.
The movie shows a strongly contrast-enhanced view of Jupiter in very detail.

Each still frame of the movie has been calculated directly from the respective raw image.
JunoCam's raw Perijove-06 RGB images #099 to #137 went into this computer animation.

Is this really real? Anytime I see a pic of something like this, it's either in crappy black and white cell phone quality, or it says "artist drawing". Amazing pic.

For this particular image, there's been some compositing and enhancement done... but at the bottom of it, is the real photographic imagery from the JunoCam.

In other words, it's not an artist's work, it's the real thing.

Check out JPL's website for animated gif of Saturn's poles on Solstice (theirs). Equally cool! (Would have posted but can't copy the gif).
