I think belated acknowledgement and congratulations are due for Bjorn's magnificent achievement of making it to the front cover of Sky & Telescope (or at least his Voyager GRS composite did, anyway). cool.gif

The cover of the March 2016 issue:

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Superb, Bjorn! Of course, your work is always superb, but now it's superb in a new venue.

That is awesome! Plus it's fantastic to see such a great glossy from an image that's older than I am by a few years.

Absolutely fantastic front cover, the personal sense of gratification must be immense, yet I don't recall any mention of the upcoming front cover image ever being mentioned in the 'Coming Soon' thread.

A talented yet, modest man it would seem. smile.gif

Wonderful. Swear Jar.

The Juno images are such rich sources of pareidolia that it's rarely worthwhile to mention specific instances.

But did anyone else see a troop of horses, one with a rider? And a seated goblin worthy of Maurice Sendak?

Question: Are those flashes lighting?

My question is, are the lightning flashes based on data from JunoCAM, or are they an artistic flourish?

While Iím no longer keeping up with every development, I understand that the Juno mission has observed dark-side lighting with its Stellar Reference Unit, but I believe that the extent to which lightning is visible in Junocam images has been the subject of lively discussion on UMSF.

In the JPL writeup it states "Using information that Juno has learned from studying Jupiterís atmosphere, the animation team simulated lightning one might see as we pass over Jupiterís giant thunderstorms". So artistic flourish based some observational data.

No problem Tom, I usually skip the writeup and go strait to the images or figures myself.
