Eyes on the Solar System
If you can't be at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory – or in orbit around Jupiter – for Jupiter orbit insertion, the next best place to be might be in front of your computer watching NASA's Eyes on the Solar System app. Or, you could be watching NASA TV commentary on July 4 – which not only includes interviews and live views from mission control – but has a presentation about Eyes on the Solar System.
Eyes On The Solar System has developed a module dedicated to the Juno mission to Jupiter. In this online, interactive visualization, you can ride along with the Juno spacecraft in real-time as it arrives at Jupiter on the 4th of July, or travel backward or forward in time to from launch to its planned fiery end of mission in February of 2018.
