By Philosophia-47 on 2019-02-08 UT

The attached PDF is a report on the PJ17 images.  Highlights include:

--A view of Io with a visible volcanic plume;

--The shadow of Amalthea on the EZ, plus a mysterious tiny dark spot on NEBn;

--A map covering much of the planet at the start of the new apparition;

--Fine details of the NTB rifted region with hazes and clouds at different levels;

--The ochre-coloured EZ, with some mesoscale waves;

--JunoCam’s first good view of oval BA, now almost white; its rapid circulation has been visualised.

The full-size figures will be added in a subsequent ZIP file.
