Original Caption Released with Image:

The JunoCam instrument aboard NASA's Juno spacecraft captured this view of Jupiter's moon Io – the first-ever image of the moon's south polar region – during Juno's 60th flyby of Jupiter on Apr. 9, 2024.

Citizen scientist Thomas Thomopoulos made this image by applying further processing to an image created from raw JunoCam data by another citizen scientist, Gerald Eichstädt.

At the time the raw image was taken, Juno was about 10,250 miles (16,500 kilometers) above the surface of Io.

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