Besides working on JunoCam images Kevin Gill has been digging into photos taken by the Voyager probes, reprocessing the original image data with current software and techniques. Here's Uranus' moon Miranda, from Voyager 2 on 24 January 1986.

This thread has a new home, and so here's a new JunoCam image from the most recent "Perijove" (flyby). Looking down at (relative to us) the planet's northern hemisphere. Initial RAW processing and compositing by Gerald Eichstädt with further processing, mostly color/tonal, by Seán Doran. Among the initial processing tools used is Mathematica (for scripting).

Maybe ask Elon Musk when (and how) he plans to get rid of his current personal Tesla.  ;D  ;D

Just to note: if you got as close to Jupiter as Juno gets you'd be fried into something with a charcoal outer crust and the inner consistency of marzipan.  :o

One more from Perijove #11. Processed by Seán Doran after pre-processing by Gerald Eichstädt & Matt Brealey. "True color" according to Seán. Same location as previous pic here.

Here's a bit of Jupiter artwork derived from a JunoCam image taken during Perijove #10. Created by a fellow named Rick Lundh.
