Juno's first orbit of Jupiter: The "Marble Movie"
During its first long orbit of Jupiter, Juno used its JunoCam to capture images of Jupiter and its moons two to four times per hour. From July 10 to July 16, 2016, as Juno receded, it took two frames per hour, with two 7-hour gaps on July 14. From July 16 to July 28, it took four frames per hour, so the animation appears to slow down. From July 29 to August 27, it took two frames per hour. The animation continues until just two hours before Juno's closest approach.
