Perseus and Jupiter's Main Dust Ring
This annotated, high-resolution image of Jupiter's main dust ring was collected by the Stellar Reference Unit (SRU) navigation camera aboard NASA's Juno spacecraft. The image was taken from inside the ring looking out as Juno flew between Jupiter and the radiation belts during the spacecraft's 36th close flyby on Sept. 2, 2021. The brightest thin dust bands are associated with the orbits of Jupiter's small moons, Metis and Adrastea. The image also captured an arm of the Perseus constellation, as shown in the annotation.
