About This Round
As Juno approaches Jupiter we will make a relatively close pass by Europa. With an altitude of ~47000 km above the surface JunoCam resolution will be ~30 km / pixel. We will take 5 images with various levels of integration times. After that Juno continues on to Jupiter to collect a swath of images as the spacecraft goes through perijove.
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
Not likely, but if we see a plume illuminated above Europa's terminator that will be very exciting!

    In case anyone is curious, that is Ganymede's shadow on Jupiter.
