JIRAM's window on Jupiter, August 26, 2016
An animation of 145 Juno JIRAM images obtained over a period of 1 hour and 16 minutes from a distance of approximately 1.6 million kilometers. Even though it may look as if the spacecraft is traveling south to north this is not the case; it is the direction in which the spacecraft is looking that changes. The Great Red Spot is clearly visible. Images have been processed to reveal details in areas that appear very dark in the original data.
