Notes about cylindrical maps and perijove passes

We create cylindrical maps from the telescopic images supplied by our amateur astronomers, and we update them every 2 weeks. Jupiter has a dynamic atmosphere where winds in the belts (brown) and zones (white) go in opposite directions. Storms develop and evolve, and other atmospheric features come and go. With each new map, we move all of the POI markers — sometimes POIs disappear, sometimes they get torn apart.

In its 53 day orbit, Juno spends most of the time distant from Jupiter. The spacecraft swoops from the north to the south pole in just 2 hours, which we call a "perijove pass". That means that the images JunoCam can take are restricted to a swath of longitude – we will not be able to select from all the points of interest every orbit. On the Voting page we will say which POI's are likely to be within our field of view on a given perijove pass and you will participate in the selection of which POI's to image.

We will have a conversation on every perijove pass about which POIs to image, and the debate will be based on the threads of discussion associated with those POIs.

    Dear NASA; Juno Mission; MSSS;

    several days ago, around a week to be precise I have contacted to you via the 'Think Tank contact us' web option. Should I specifically mention that 'I would like to be involved in this group' or just to made the contact?

    To be honest as far as I understand this group is dealing with mostly Jupiter Mapping; Jupiter Meteorology; and Jupiter Weather Forecasts. I am not exactly interested in this area of the Space Science.

    Do I belong in the 'Think Tank' group, while I am designing; creating and contributing mostly Space Science related concepts?

    Everyone should be excited for Juno's 13th perijove

    Right now I have put up a marker named Cyclone of Athena pending approval. Right now it appears that the Cyclone of Athena (Latitude:-30°; Longitude: 326) is roughly 180° opposite of the Great Red Spot in latitude. It is sucking all the gas that appears to be in the lower zone of gas that the G.R.S. is spitting out and and is creating in it's wake a black cloud (which I suggest we call The Athenian Scar while it lasts because of the legend of how Athena, goddess of wisdom, was born.) I think that there must be a force that causes this storm to eat up a band coming from G.R.C. and not get sucked into it. Any suggestions from a professional or amateur who knows everything they can possibly know on this subject?

      It all started here on Earth. With the science Meteorology and Weather Forecasting. Naming a Large Lethal Storm; a Devastating Hurricane; Destructive Cyclone and so on, is a huge success for the Meteorologists Scientists. And than yet on Planet Earth they are so few and important part of the Atmosphere. My only concern is that on Jupiter they are the MAIN Visible think and are sooo many, so probably the smaller one are absolutely insignificant. It will went that it is not so large success to name so much POI's and so many Atmospheric Formations on Jupiter. Perhaps just the main Features. I MEAN: Look what you, the POI'sers have done, turned the Jupiter to look like a Swiss Cheese. It will be a success if you name a Hard Land or Water there on Jupiter.
