The instruments should be on; they are all working on approach, but every instrument will be turned off 5 days before JOI until after orbit insertion.

I have a lengthy "what to expect" blog post about Junocam imaging coming soon -- it's currently under review.

Juno-Closing in on Jupiter Media Briefing-to Discuss July4 Arrival on NASA TV starts at 11 a.m. PDT / 1800 UTC.
Almost sufficient time to listen TPS planetary radio, "JunoCam, The People's Jupiter Camera", before.

Superb in-depth article, thank you so much Emily. Expectations-management of the highest order! Can't wait to see the data trickle in.

Wow, it is getting really close to JOI (10 days, Woohoo). Next Tuesday we get my prop system all ready for JOI by opening valves to repressurize the propellant tanks. We haven't used that hardware since the DSM's in 2012 (but they will open just fine). The steps to JOI effort is summed up pretty well in a recent article. Go Juno!!

I'm starting to get more excited as the orbital insertion draws near. Good luck to the Juno team.

In case you missed the June 16, 2016 briefing "Closing in on Jupiter", you can find it on Youtube here:

Closing in on Jupiter

Also, the first color picture from near the Jovian system was released today:



This was taken at a distance of 6.8 million miles (10.9 million kilometers) from Jupiter.

I had not noticed that this JunoCam image was part of the release -- thank you very much for pointing it out!

Here's a livestream of the Eyes simulation if for whatever reason you cannot load it on your device (with peaceful music added):

Propulsion system pressurization went perfectly on Tuesday (see the link, my colleagues in the UK who supplied the engine must have good media contacts). JOI sequence goes active on the vehicle today. Go Juno!
