Jupiter's north pole (combined JunoCam and JIRAM data)
An impossible view of Jupiter's north pole, as it would appear if lit and viewed from directly above. It is a mosaic of JunoCam images from perijoves 1, 3, 4 and 5. The effects of the varying global illumination have been removed. Because the very north pole was in winter darkness at the time of these perijoves in early 2017, an inverted, heavily processed and colorized JIRAM mosaic was used to fill the gap.
