The JunoCam instrument obtained this view on August 27, about two hours before its closest approach, when the spacecraft was 120,000 miles (195,000 kilometers) away from the giant planet. Radio emissions from Jupiter’s auroras were captured during the flyby
The emissions were first discovered in the 1950s but had never been analysed from such a close vantage point before.
‘Jupiter is talking to us in a way only gas-giant worlds can,’ said Bill Kurth, research…
