About This Round
This will be the first time we open up the complete perijove pass for images you select. BE SURE if you have a candidate that you have entered a POI for it! We go by votes, not by sites suggested in the comments. On every pass we will take an image of the north pole and an image of the south pole. The rest are up to you! The spacecraft orientation is what we call "MWR-nadir". It is optimized for the MicroWave Radiometer instrument so the effect is to point JunoCam at the groundtrack below the spacecraft, not offset to the side.
Perijove Predict Map
About Perijove Predict Maps

Every perijove pass we have the challenge of predicting where Points of Interest will be as the different zones of the planet have different wind velocities. This map shows our effort to rotate the latitudinal zones with their different wind speeds to predict what will be under the Juno groundtrack.

    Went with big red stripe.

    Why does this one band apparently encircle the planet so uniformly?

    Also, I'm wondering if Jupiter's clouds and stripes are influenced by the tidal pulls from the major moons.

    Oval BA got my vote too!

    I believe viewing the transition areas between bands is critical. We have a general understanding of how and why the differentiation occurs, but a more detailed understanding could be invaluable for unraveling the mysteries of the many layers of Jupiter's atmosphere!
