From 500 million miles away from Earth and while traveling at 127 000 mph, NASA Juno has done it again. Marking four years in orbit around gas giant planet Jupiter, humanitys furthest solar-power spacecraft sent back yet another batch of astonishing images. It comes in wake of some lucky images taken of Jupiter from Earth. This month and next are perfect times to see Jupiter with your own eyes from your backyard, with giant planet now rising before midnight as it moves towards bright opposition in mid-July 2020. In orbit of Jupiter since July 5 2016, Juno has been conducting scientific investigation of from elliptical polar orbit that see it spend most of its time away from Jupiter. However, it is this orbit that allows Juno to get super-close to Jupiters cloud-tops, which it does for short time every 53 days. Each dip close to is called Perijove, Greek for extreme points in orbit of one body around another. Composition gravity magnetic field polar magnetosphere planets core amount of water in its deep atmosphere its 384 mph winds and solar systems strong storms. However, although Juno has payload of nine scientific instruments, its JunoCama small visible light camerawas include largely for outreach purposes. It been star of mission so far, and despite being designed to last only eight orbits, it is still going strong. Raw data from JunoCam is gradually download from spacecraft after each period and for team of citizen scientists to work on. Some of volunteers have used their impressive image processing skills to produce works of art. These include Jupiters giant jet-stream, classic Jupiter Marble churning Jupiter and Jupiters racing stripes. There are many, others on JunoCams dedicate website. Include here are just samples of images processed from its most recent period not to mention Kevin Gills ' fabulous global Jupiter image that adorns top of this article. However, Juno is also doing Science; it recently teamed up with Hubble Space Telescope and ground-base Gemini Observatory in Hawaii to study Jupiter storms simultaneously. Thunderheads on Jupiter can stretch-out 40 miles, five times taller than typical thunderheads on super-energetic lightning flashes. As it swoops low over Jupiters cloud-tops, Juno has been able to detect radio signals and use them to map where lightning is occurring on both night-side and day-sides of planet. Earlier this year, Juno also discovered that Jupiter is water-world; water makes up about 0. 25 percentage of molecules in Jupiters atmosphere at equator. Juno is named after wife of Greek and Roman god Jupiter, after which giant planet is name. Juno launch on August 5 2011, on Atlas V rocket. It is part of NASAs New Frontiers missions, also include New Horizons mission that studies Pluto and Arrokoth, and which may visit distant star.
