Cylindrical Map

We use images from amateur astronomers (uploaded on the Planning page) to create a new cylindrical map every 14 days. This is the latest one! We have identified long-lived storms as Points of Interest (POI’S) and invite you to share your thoughts about them.

Notes about cylindrical maps and perijove passes

In its 53-day orbit, Juno spends most of the time distant from Jupiter. The spacecraft swoops from the north to the south pole in just 2 hours, which we call a "perijove pass".  That means that the close-up images JunoCam can take are restricted to just a swath of longitude, not the entire globe.   JunoCam points out along the solar arrays, and for most perijove passes the solar arrays are oriented to the sun, so JunoCam is pointing 90 degrees from the sun.

As time goes on Juno’s orbit is moving around Jupiter.  The most distant point of the orbit is moving to Jupiter’s night side.  Perijove (“PJ”), the closest point in the orbit, is moving more to the sun-side, which impacts JunoCam because this moves Jupiter off to the side of our field of view.   A simple comparison of the images collected at PJ9 to PJ10 in the Processing gallery shows how the geometry is changing the shape of the images.

For those of you who have been participating since the beginning, we initially used this page to identify Points of Interest (POIs).  We would then vote on which POI’s to take pictures of on any given perijove pass.  This was a concept that we developed for Juno’s 14-day mission plan.   The decision to stay in a 53-day orbit means that the viewing geometry changes more and this impacts our ability to predict what will be in JunoCam’s field of view.   (To see the POI’s that were selected in the past you can go to the Voting page.)

    The Juno mission inspired me to write a piece of music dedicated to the 16th flyby last December. It musically depicts the course of a single orbit. Check out the link if you're interested! https://chrischilds.bandcamp.com/

      very nice piece of music!

    Can someone point me towards algorithms for map-projecting RAW JunoCam data onto equirectangular maps? Anyone knows how this is done?

    Greetings -

    I have tried numerous times to bring out the intricacies of the Jovian cloud forms from the raw images, such as the nimbus-like cloud tops and appearance of layering. I just cannot find it there in the 1600 X 1600 pixel images provided for the general public's use. If I may respectfully use as an example, the images of Mr. Eichstadt or Mr. Gill show unprecedented details and sharpness. I have tried to replicate their works using a rather ancient version of Photoshop, and I believe it is still capable enough to produce the basics. I have to suspect that there are other forms of raw images or data from which are somehow accessible, but not to the public. Am I correct?

      The raw images are indeed posted, but they are much more difficult to use. When you go to download an image it is the "striped" version on the far left. That is where Mr. Gill and Mr. Eichstadt start. Most people do not have the sophisticated image processing tools they have, which is why we post the other (albeit lower resolution) images for people to use.

      Dear JunoCAM Team, NASA, MSSS, can we work out and discuss the Colors a bit more here on the Discussion section?

      As far as I understand scientific terms, what the JunoCAM Tool is showing are approximately raw; TRUE; realistic Colors of Jupiter. It is showing the Reflected Light in Colors from the planetary surface at the right orbital distance from the Star...

      When the Citizen Scientists and Artists are enhancing; enriching; sharpening the raw images they are showing a '(NATURAL COLOR)' or an Image of Jupiter as it should look at the Earth Orbital Distance from the Star in an approximate Human Eye Resolution in Pixels... ?

      The JunoCam images that have been processed to show Jupiter in true color should be comparable to what you would obtain if you could orbit Jupiter in a spaceship and photograph it with a typical camera (or even a phone). Even though Jupiter is five times farther from the Sun than the Earth is, the sunlight at Jupiter easily bright enough for typical consumer-type cameras. It's roughly comparable to an overcast/cloudy day on Earth.

      When processing the raw JunoCam images into true color images some corrections have to be made to the original, raw data. Otherwise you get orange or yellow colored images which is not at all like Jupiter's color. The correction can be done using true color Earth-based Jupiter images as a reference, or by using Jupiter's spectrum to compute the correct overall color. Also some areas on Jupiter are known to be approximately white and these can be used as a reference.

      The resolution of the JunoCam images is rather similar to the resolution (or resolving power) of the human eye - maybe slightly lower. This is different from most other spacecraft images which usually have a much narrower field of view than JunoCam (and therefore higher resolution). This means that what you see in a true color JunoCam image should be rather similar to what you would see with your own eye's from the spacecraft's location, both in terms of color and resolution.

    Hello.

    Can you please tell me how far north in latitude the image at

    https://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA21641

    shows? It's centered on Jupiter's south pole, but I'd like to know the northern extent.

    Thanks so much,
