Original Caption Released with Image:

Juno's Radiation Monitoring Investigation used the Stellar Reference Unit (SRU) star camera to collect this high-resolution image of the dark side of Jupiter during Perijove 11 on Feb. 7, 2018. The clouds are illuminated by moonlight from Jupiter's moon Io and the two bright spots on the right side of the image are flashes of Jovian lightning. Juno was only 41,000 miles (66,000 kilometers) from the cloud tops when this SRU image was collected. The left side of the composite image shows a 3-dimensional visualization of Jupiter's Northern hemisphere with its northern aurora included. To the right of the aurora and solar terminator line, is a box illustrating the position of the SRU field of view at the time the image was taken. Further to the right is an exploded view of the SRU image.

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