This is an actual stereograph, not an artificial 3D conversion made from a single 2D image. The 6-minute 1.0-second interval between two JunoCam images taken during the time lapse sequence of Perijove 22 (12 September 2019 at 04:37:55.259 and 04:43:56.239 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 85,954.05 km (53,409.3 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 22, is unknown (at least to the creator of this stereograph). Note that during the 6-minute 1.0-second interval, Juno ascended 10,283.3 km (6,389.7 miles), from 80,812.4 km to 91,095.7 km (a 12.72% gain in altitude), requiring z-axis correction in addition to x- and y-axis skewing, to produce the stereograph.
