Junocam's polar view on Jupiter

Junocam's polar view on Jupiter
Junocam's polar view on Jupiter This simulated view of the south pole of Jupiter illustrates the unique perspective of the Juno mission. The spacecraft's polar orbit will allow Junocam to image Jupiter's clouds from a vantage point never accessed by other spacecraft. Junocam has a 58-degree-wide field of view encompassing the entire polar region. The view illustrated here simulates an image taken 40 minutes before Juno's closest approach to Jupiter. At closest approach, Junocam's images of Jupiter's cloud tops will have a resolution better than 5 kilometers per pixel. NASA / JPL / MSSS
