PJ53_165 raw data with the limbs of Jupiter and Io marked with bright pixels showing Io's limb is within 1-2 of Jupiter's 1-bar limb. In the illuminated area along the bottom of Jupiter's image the atmosphere can be seen extending about 6 pixels beyond the 1-bar level. Since Io appears to be obscured within about 6 pixels of the limb it seems likely this is a partial occultation.

This occultation first reported by Gerald Eichstädt at https://www.missionjuno.swri.edu/junocam/processing?id=15399
