JunoCam at PJ46

John Rogers (BAA) (2022 Nov.23)


Here is our report on Juno’s Perijove-46, which occurred on 2022 Nov.6.  As well as the usual stunning close-ups of the north pole, turbulent northern domains, and other regions, the images produced:

–A complete global map from the inbound and outbound images, compared with an amateur map;

–Fine details in the EZ and SEB from high-quality (lossless) images;

–Close-ups of STB Dark Spot 8 and a contrasting cyclonic white oblong in the SSTB;

–Maps of the haze bands in the South Polar region.
