This color-enhanced picture was taken on Dec. 16, 2017 during 9:47 a.m. PST (12:47 p.m. EST), as Juno achieved a tenth tighten flyby of Jupiter. At a time a picture was taken, a booster was about 5,600 miles (8,787 kilometers) from a tops of a clouds of a world during a embodiment of 38.4 degrees north.

Citizen scientist Björn Jónsson processed this picture regulating information from a JunoCam imager. This picture has been processed from a tender JunoCam framelets by stealing a effects of tellurian illumination. Jónsson afterwards increasing a contrariety and tone and sensory smallscale features. The picture has also been cropped.

While during initial peek a perspective might seem to be in Jupiter’s south, a tender source images were performed when Juno was above a planet’s northern hemisphere looking south, potentially causing a clarity of disorientation to a viewer. The geometry of a stage can be explored regulating a time of a picture and a Juno goal procedure of NASA’s Eyes on a Solar System.
