We’ve seen plenty of stunning images of Jupiter and its moons, Ganymede, Europa, and Io, thanks to NASA’s Juno probe. However, the spacecraft recently had a glitch that cost it most of the images it had taken during the latest flyby. That’s over 200 photos that could have been used for scientific purposes as much as for admiration. And what’s concerning is – this is the second glitch in a row.
NASA’s Juno spacecraft reveals the fiery beauty of Jupiter’s moon Io
NASA’s Juno spacecraft has treated us with some stunning photos of Jupiter and its moons, Ganymede and Europa. But now, the mission to Jupiter has turned its cameras on sister moon Io. And in this family of moons, this is the sister that’s got a temper!
Io is the most volcanic place in the solar system, with eruptions raging all over its surface. Juno captured them in a photo, revealing the red-hot beauty and temper of Jupiter’s moon.
NASA release Juno mission’s closest image yet of Jupiter’s moon Europa
No, it’s not the back view of Patrick Stewert’s head. Nor is it a cricket ball that was lost in 1926 and spent the rest of its life hidden under a hedge on the village green. Nope, what you’re looking at instead is actually one of Jupiter’s 80 moons. This is an image of Europa released by NASA and taken by its Juno mission.
Observations from the spacecraft’s pass of the moon provided the first close-up in over two decades of this ocean world, resulting in remarkable imagery and unique science.
NASA wants you to help them analyze Juno photos of Jupiter’s clouds
Juno photos of Jupiter are absolutely stunning, as we’ve seen before. But as we all know, they aren’t here just to amaze us, they have major scientific importance. And you, our dear reader, can now contribute to the science by analyzing them.
NASA and researchers at the University of Minnesota are calling on the public to help analyze photos of Jupiter’s clouds taken by Juno. You get to look at wonderful photos, check out for vortices, and help the science. Cool, isn’t it?
NASA shares incredible image of gigantic Jupiter with two of its tiny moons
NASA’s Juno mission has recently released a photo of the gas giant Jupiter alongside two of its moons Io and Europa. The mission captured this view of Jupiter’s southern hemisphere during the spacecraft’s 39th close flyby of the planet on Jan. 12 2022.
Although the two moons are quite dark on the right-hand side of the image, they are clearly visible, and really help show the difference in scale between the huge planet and its moons. The moons are more visible in the close-up image below.
New images from NASA’s Juno mission show Jupiter’s atmosphere spot in 3D detail
Nasa’s Juno mission to Jupiter reported new findings of the turbulent atmosphere of the giant planet, including fascinating new images that show the extent of the famous red spot in 3D.
NASA shares stunningly detailed photos of Jupiter’s giant moon Ganymede
Juno spacecraft has brought us some of the most incredible photos of Jupiter over the last few years. It recently flew close to Jupiter’s giant moon Ganymede, and it’s the closest any spacecraft flew to it in more than 20 years. During its flyby, Juno took some photos, and as usual – it didn’t disappoint. The first two images were sent back to Earth and they give us a wonderful and detailed look at the icy mammoth.
New Jupiter photos from NASA look like abstract paintings
NASA has recently published new photos of Jupiter taken by Juno spacecraft over the past year. Just like previous times, the photos will leave you in awe. The latest images of the planet look like abstract watercolor paintings, or “ink in water” art, and the amount of detail in them is striking.
Phottix launches the “innovative” Juno manual speedlight with built in 2.4Ghz transceiver
Phottix have announced a new speedlight, it’s “a manual flash with all the innovation you’ve come to expect from Phottix”. And, if you’ve come to expect “not much”, then yup, absolutely. Phottix’s new Juno speedlight is a manual speedlight with a built in 2.4Ghz transceiver. Not dissimilar to the half-the-price, Yongnuo YN560-IV.
Juno has a guide number of 58 (fudged by zooming the head to 200mm), and goes as low as 1/128th power. It’s compatible with their “cutting edge” Ares II and Strato II flash triggers. Or, it can act as a transmitter itself, controlling other flashes.
The latest photos of Jupiter via Juno are amazing
Thanks to NASA’s public media library, we’re able to see, download and edit the most amazing photos from space. And the latest photos of Jupiter by Juno spacecraft are groundbreaking and incredible.
Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, the storm bigger the Earth, is now captured in the closest and the clearest photos ever. Juno captured them 5,600 miles above the clouds, and NASA posted them in their gallery for the public to download and process. The images show an incredible amount of details, helping the scientists understand the storm better, and making the rest of us gasp in awe.
