This is an actual stereograph, not an artificial 3D conversion made from a single 2D image. The 6-minute 3.8-second interval between two JunoCam images taken during the time lapse sequence of Perijove 6 (19 May 2017 at 07:19:15.885 and 07:25:19.693 UTC) established a stereo base (camera separation) of thousands of kilometers, from which this stereographic image pair was crafted using Photoshop. Thanks to the velocity of Juno, the distance traveled during the interval between these two captures effectively gives our eyes that same separation. Viewing Jupiter at a known average altitude of 123,288.25 km (76,607.6 miles), it's nevertheless possible to perceive features of the atmosphere three dimensionally. Juno's actual speed and, thus, the stereo base for this image pair from Perijove 6, is unknown (at least to the creator of this stereograph). Note that during the 6-minute 3.8-second interval, Juno ascended 10,140.1 km (6,300.8 miles), from 118,218.2 km to 128,358.3 km (an 8.58% gain in altitude), requiring z-axis correction in addition to x- and y-axis skewing, to produce the stereograph. Note: Retinal rivaly reveals the motion of a small orange moon that can be seen in the light-colored band, along a radial at roughly 10 O'clock relative to the pole. It moved a considerable distance during the 6-minute interval between exposures.
