First image of Jupiter from JunoCam

Go Back

First image of Jupiter from JunoCam Just before its closest approach to Earth on October 9, 2013, Juno turned to capture a view of its eventual goal, the giant planet Jupiter, a tiny speck located 764 million kilometers away. The curve at the bottom of this image is not Earth but rather stray light from the brilliant Earth, coming from out of the field of view.
