JunoCam at PJ27

PJ27 was on Tuesday June 2, and a typical set of superb images was taken.  

Our report is posted here in two parts.  Part I is based mainly on the ‘version 01’ images posted by the JunoCam team.  Part II (posted on August 1) is based on full-quality maps and images produced by Gerald Eichstädt and by Björn Jónsson.

The highlight was the closeup imaging of ‘Clyde’s spot’, a new convective plume that erupted two days earlier in a faint cyclonic spot in the STB latitudes, as discovered by Clyde Foster.  A broader account of this is his 2-page abstract for the EPSC, attached herewith.
