On June 7, 2021, NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew closer to Jupiter’s ice-encrusted moon Ganymede than any spacecraft in more than two decades. Less than a day later, Juno made its 34th flyby of Jupiter. This animation provides a “starship captain” point of view of each flyby. For both worlds, JunoCam images were orthographically projected onto a digital sphere and used to create the flyby animation. Synthetic frames were added to provide views of approach and departure for both Ganymede and Jupiter.

  1. Saw the infered heating of Jupiter from its polar fields from this mission. It's that cool? Wonder if there is that kinds heating done to earth too. And why the earth climate is charging. And the weakning magnetic fields. And such strange lightning and earth discharges happening.
