Juno at PJ22

Perijove 22 (2019 Sep.12) was another Gravity flyby in which JunoCam obtained good images of the polar regions but only very oblique views of the equatorial region.  A vidual highlight was the shadow of Io on the NEB; the figure below shows a variety of ways in which the relevant images can be processed, by the JunoCam team and various citizen scientists.  The turbulent SEB following the GRS was well shown.  The attached report includes updates on the circumpolar cyclones and other polar structures.
