Where is Juno?

As of Nov. 20, 2015, Juno is approximately 522 million miles (841 million kilometers) from Earth. The one-way radio signal travel time between Earth and Juno is currently about 47 minutes.

Juno is traveling at a velocity of approximately 68,000 miles per hour (about 30 kilometers per second) relative to Earth, 18,000 miles per hour (about 8 kilometers per second) relative to the Sun, and 12,000 miles per hour (about 5 kilometers per second) relative to Jupiter. Juno has now travelled 1.67 billion miles (2.69 billion kilometers, or 18.01 AU) since launch, and has another 85 million miles to go (137 million kilometers, or 0.92 AU) before entering orbit around Jupiter.

The Juno spacecraft remains in excellent health and is operating nominally.

Juno is slated to arrive at the gas giant planet on July 4, 2016 (scheduled for 7:47 p.m. Pacific Time), in 227 days. Visualize Juno’s journey through space and get up-to-date data sets using NASA's Eyes on the Solar System 3D interactive.

Did You Know?

When Juno arrives at Jupiter, the spacecraft will be traveling over 165,000 miles per hour (265,000 kilometers per hour) relative to Earth, setting a new speed record for the fastest moving human-made object in history.
