Simulation of What Juno Will 'See' From Jupiter Orbit

This animation shows how Jupiter will appear to the camera onboard NASA's Juno mission, called JunoCam, as the spacecraft goes through an orbit. Juno will circle Jupiter every 11 days from an elliptical orbit. During the majority of this orbit, the spacecraft is at a large distance from the planet, so Jupiter will appear quite small in JunoCam's wide field of view.
