Views of Earth from Juno Juno took these photos of Earth from its Junocam during its October 9, 2013 flyby. The left and right images are in color; the center one was taken through a filter at an infrared wavelength in which methane is strongly absorbing. At Earth, the main effect of using that filter is to see vegetated areas as being relatively bright, since vegetation is strongly reflective in the near-infrared.


Original image data dated on or about October 9, 2013.
