Perijove #16 was a couple days ago. Images were slower coming in this time, but here's one as processed by Kevin Gill.

Two more from Perijove #16, as processed by Kevin Gill. I like the subtle color palette he's now opted to use.

Awesome.  If we saw that as a CGI BG in a space movie, we'd say "Nawww.  Too fake!"  :)

There are some cool time-lapse animations too, recently put together by Seán Doran and available via his Twitter and Flickr (https://www.flickr.com/photos/seandoran/) accounts.

Perijove #17 happened on December 21st. Here's a sequence of images from it, in "true" and "enhanced" versions, processed by Gerald Eichstädt, Brian Swift and Seán Doran. (The former two provide automated processing pipelines that Seán uses as starting points.)

Here's a first (I think): a JunoCam image processing collaboration between Kevin Gill & Seán Doran. This is from Perijove #16.

Here's a Perijove #17 image, lightly processed by a fellow named Justin Cowart. "Taken from an altitude of 97,000 km over the south pole on December 21, 2018. The Great Red Spot is on the horizon, while the 'Little Red Spot', although devoid of color at this time, is passing immediately to its south."

And here's Kevin Gill's more enhanced take on a JunoCam image from the same sequence as the pic directly above. Lotsa lovely detail in this one.

Amazing image, the last one. You really feel like it's floating above you.

Forgot to post this last week. It's off-topic: the full "best so far" LORRI image of MU69 (aka "Ultima Thule"). Once New Horizons re-emerges from behind the sun relative to us (should happen later today, I think) the NH team will start bringing back higher res images. Because the spacecraft is so far away from us now (over six light hours) retrieving data from the recent flyby is both trickier in technical terms and just takes longer than it did with Pluto. I do like the bonus stars in this pic.  :)

Which gives rise to my favourite song hook of recent days"

"A billion miles beyond Pluto"  :)
