Juno's 53-day orbit has presented the opportunity to observe Jupiter's dark side. This animation is an artist's rendition of Juno's inbound -- over Jupiter's north pole -- approach to Perijove 17 (which occurred on Dec. 21, 2018). During the flyby the SRU obtained the closest view of Jupiter's aurora with a visible light imager to date.

JunoCam's raw images are available at www.missionjuno.swri.edu/junocam for the public to peruse and process into image products.
