This is a global cylindrical map of Jupiter at PJ23, compiled from maps of individual JunoCam images made by Gerald Eichstädt. Important features are labelled. The inset is a methane-band map covering the GRS; red, methane-bright loops around the GRS are derived from the 'flakes' that were pulled out of the GRS in preceding weeks. The sub-spacecraft track is plotted from the actual coordinates recorded for the JunoCam images during this flyby. This is Figure 2 from our full report on PJ23, which is posted on the Think Tank pages and on our BAA Jupiter Section web site. -- John Rogers.
