JunoCam at PJ62

Juno’s Perijove-62 was on 2024 June 13, preceded by medium-range imaging of Io.  Jupiter was not in JunoCam’s field of view until the last hour before north pole crossing, so only a small sector of the northern hemisphere was recorded — albeit at high resolution.  An image of the north polar cyclones was successfully recorded, and we compare the pattern over the past 6 perijoves.  Then there was a typical outbound sequence producing a lo-res map of the southern hemisphere.
