Not shabby. Via Eichstädt and Doran.

Really not shabby. This one is a blend of three exposures, also via Eichstädt and Doran. Makes Jupiter look like the eyeball of someone really hung over.  :D  Like the previous pic this is from Perijove #12.

Here's a Perijove #12 JunoCam image from the southern hemisphere, close in taking time to an Eichstädt/Doran image above. This one processed by Kevin Gill.

And here's an entire sequence of JunoCam pics from Perijove #12, processed by Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran. "Jupiter Descending," Seán calls it. Gonna be hard to top the images from this latest flyby, I think. They're almost too good.

Here's Kevin Gill's take on a Perijove #12 image of Jupiter's south equatorial belt. This belt occasionally disappears from view, as during 2009-10, due to clustering of ammonia ice clouds high in Jupiter's atmosphere.

Here's an example of a different take on JunoCam images, by a fellow named Don Davis with pre-processing by Mattias Malmer. I really like his gentler processing approach. From Perijove #12.

A pic from Perijove #7 (Sept. 2017), newly processed by Mattias Malmer and showing Jupiter's moons Europa & Io just above the planet's limb.

Check out the atmospheric undulations in this JunoCam pic. Processed by Mattias Malmer.

Juno's 13th flyby (Perijove) of Jupiter happened on May 23. Rather than directly post pics this time, here's a link to Seán Doran's Flickr page of initial image processing passes.

Perijove #14 will be Juno's last unless it gets a mission extension. Given its success so far I imagine the Juno team will get the extension if they request it.

Glad you're enjoying 'em, Mike.  :)  The JunoCam citizen scientists/image processors are all working on the Perijove #13 images. I'll probably post some of the more eye-catching renditions directly here.

Here's a contrasty take on a Perijove #13 JunoCam image of Jupiter's "South South Temperate Belt." Processed by Kevin Gill.

Two images from Perijove #13 via Björn Jónsson. I like his "enhanced true color" palette.

NASA has given the Juno mission a three-year extension. Hurrah!

Two versions of one image from Perijove #13 via Björn Jónsson. The first with "natural" color & contrast, the second enhanced.
