About This Round
There aren't any opportunities to image the galilean moons so this will be all Jupiter all the time. We will approach from the night side, but with enough of an illuminated crescent that our images will be designed for good images of Jupiter, not lightning searches which over-expose illuminated territory. This will be the same story as the spacecraft departs from Jupiter - no lightning search images in favor of nicely exposed Jupiter images. We will get an entire rotation of Jupiter as the spacecraft departs over Jupiter's south pole. In between the perijove swath will feature high resolution views of the storms in the northern hemisphere.
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.

Winner Selection
We will take more methane images than usual with our extra data volume. These images, though not pretty, tell us about the altitude of the clouds.
