Juno's Perijove-05 flyby of Jupiter

May 22, 2017

On March 27, 2017, Juno performed its Perijove 05 flyby (PJ-05) with all instruments on, including JunoCam. JunoCam images covered all Jupiter latitudes, but some parts only with very acute angles. This computer animation uses the JunoCam images of PJ-05 as textures, and SPICE trajectory data in order to reconstruct the flyby as seen from Juno's perspective. The movie is increased in speed 125x relative to real time. Brightness changes and flickering in the movie are processing artifacts.
