About This Round
The camera has experienced an anomaly at power on starting with PJ46. We have decided to leave the camera on rather than powering it on and off. So, there will be many more images incoming and outgoing from Jupiter. This perijove pass includes a pass by Io at ~51,500 km inbound to Jupiter. The perijove pass itself will feature the usual contiguous latitudinal swath.
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
The beginning of the perijove pass is signified by the minimum emission image of the north polar region. We no longer use the southern minimum emission angle image as the end point because it is occuring so many hours after perijove. Instead we use PJ+2hr as our "end" of the perijove swath.
