There have been very few photos taken of the south pole of Jupiter; is is similar to the picture just released f the north pole, or is it significantly different in structure such as Saturn's hexagon?

    Just like the image above the North Pole this would give a clear and broad image of this region. This photo would reach an angle that can only be taken by JunoCam and not from earth. This is the first goal to get images of the poles so all opportunity for these is when JunoCam is in this position.

    I think you should take a picture of this because you will not be able to from any point on earth.

    Cannot easily see this section of the planet from a telescope near Earth so might as well get a good image while you can.

      The recent picture of the south pole shows a definite blue color. Are there blue clouds or blue snow and what is its composition? Why is the blue color different from the rest of the planet?

      I think that this would be a cool area to take a photo so you can compare it to the north pole
