Juno at Perijove-6: Polar and high temperate regions

When Juno flew low over Jupiter’s clouds on its sixth orbit on 2017 May 19 (Perijove-6), its camera JunoCam took many images that were both more numerous and, in some latitudes, of better quality than ever before.  The best images now surpass the Voyager close-ups.  Here is a report on the polar and high temperate regions as seen in these images, in PDF format including mini-figures:


The full-size figures are in this ZIP file:

An accompanying report on Perijoves 1-6 covers the major, low-latitude belts.
