This mosaic combines color-enhanced images from NASAs Juno spacecraft, taken over Jupiters north pole when the lighting was excellent for detecting high bands of haze.

This mosaic combines color-enhanced images taken over Jupiter's north pole when the lighting was excellent for detecting high bands of haze. The images were taken in the final hours of Juno's perijove 12 approach on April 1, 2018.

Citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and John Rogers created this image using data from the spacecraft's JunoCam imager.

JunoCam's raw images are available at www.missionjuno.swri.edu/junocam for the public to peruse and process into image products.
