This region is part of the South Equatorial Belt outbreak currently going on and Juno is going to fly right over it on this pass!

    I chose this since the color looked different and I thought there would be a storm.

    I chose this location because it contains different colors and potentially different movement. It appears to be a spot worth investigating further.

    This one does sound really cool.

    Since this is an active feature, it seems like it would be an instant go-to, in order to get a current glimpse of what exactly these are, and why they appear!

    The South Equatorial Belt is the most variable belt. It would be a great opportunity to study these " outbreaks".

    An active feature & Juno just happens to be in the right place at the right time. Would be a shame to miss the science opportunity!

    i agree studying these"outbreaks" will help determine how, and why these happen

    JUNO SPECIALIST

    This is an important feature because it's a really serendipitous event: we have a spacecraft orbiting over a really rapidly changing feature with a strong vertical as well as horizontal component. There will be coincident observations from JIRAM in the near-infrared, as well as mulitple-wavelength synoptic observations from the Earth - from telescopes of all sizes that will provide context. But nothing else will get the spatial resolution JunoCam will achieve. - Glenn Orton, Juno coordinator of the Earth-based campaign for supporting observations.

      Yes image this region!
