Brown Barge on Jupiter
This is in my opinion one of JunoCam's more spectacular observations of Jupiter because of the brown barge. The barge is located at ~40 degrees south latitude, in Jupiter's South Tropical Zone (StrZ). The color reminds me of when I saw Jupiter through a telescope during Christmas back in 2002 in exquisite seeing—by far the best I have ever experienced. There was almost no turbulence, the image was very steady, and the colors deeper and stronger than I have ever seen since—an unforgettable sight. One of the features visible was something looking like a brown barge. It had a deep and strong reddish-brownish color. The color of the barge in these JunoCam images remind me of the colors I saw back in 2002. One caveat though: Human 'color memory' is notoriously unreliable.
