I have been checking DSN Now as early as ~10:00 UTC, and the spacecraft's been downlinking data at a consistent rate of 152.76 kb/s ever since. First using Goldstone, but now the torch has been passed on to Madrid for now.

For those following along, we switched to the 34m net about 10 AM PDT, and this only supports about 30 Kbps. That'll be near-continuous, but I don't think we get more 70m time until mid-day PDT tomorrow.

Expect a partial set of images from PJ7 to show up on missionjuno in an hour or so (posted 07:23 PDT on 12 July.)

UPDATE: images posted as of 07:49 PDT.

This one ensures, that we have at least something.
In this short time, I didn't determine Juno's angular velocity, but adjusted the rotational phase to fit to the model.
The PNG version is submitted to the missionjuno site.

Now working on the other close-ups, at least for a first version...

I have to say, the views of the Great Red Spot remind me so much of Pioneer's Jupiter - a pastel-like red spot contrasted against a seemingly clear, while field. Especially this product in particular. It's kinda poetic; Juno is front seat to a Great Red Spot reminiscent of the one its distant spin-stabalised cousins saw 44 years ago.

Jaw-dropping! I know it's huge, but getting the scale right without some marker is still difficult (and this is after a few decades of shrinkages!)

I wonder what Arthur C. Clarke would say....

By the way, Sean and Gerald, just thought I'd humour you guys by saying you managed to convert a naysayer about JunoCam today. laugh.gif

Look at the parallel "ripple clouds" near the top of the Spot in Gerald's image. There's a field of about 35-40 of them spaced around 75 km apart (if my calcs are correct)

My take based on the WONDERFUL work of Gerald smile.gif



There are amazing details on the clouds inside the GRS, like some convective storms. Also, we can clearly see that the GRS is not like any earth analog. This is as storm, a hurricane, but there are other systems inside. It's like a storm made of storms.
