Extraordinary Video From NASA's Juno Mission

NASA's Juno Spacecraft has been flying around Jupiter since 2016 and has given us views of Jupiter that are the most stunning ever taken of the largest planet in our solar system

On June 7, 2021, NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew closer to Jupiter’s ice-encrusted moon Ganymede than any spacecraft in more than two decades. Less than a day later, Juno made its 34th flyby of Jupiter. This animation provides a “starship captain” point of view of each flyby. For both worlds, JunoCam images were orthographically projected onto a digital sphere and used to create the flyby animation. Synthetic frames were added to provide views of approach and departure for both Ganymede and Jupiter. Visit http://www.nasa.gov/juno & http://missionjuno.swri.edu to learn more.
