Mission Phase : PERIJOVE 18

Imaginary view flying under the clouds in a hollow Jupiter.

Flight starts at the center of Jupiter then follows a path with a depth below the clouds proportional to the Juno spacecraft's altitude above the clouds. Time speedup is 300x.

Imagery from JunoCam instrument on Juno mission collected during perijove 18 on 2/12/2019.

Enhanced color imagery produced from a color balance and contrast stretch of raw data.
