Juno Mission

The pictures should be available by Friday with information about the working and make up of the storm system.

NASA's Juno mission completed a close flyby of Jupiter and its Great Red Spot on July 10, during its sixth science orbit.

All of Juno's science instruments and the spacecraft's JunoCam were operating during the flyby, collecting data that are now being returned to Earth. Juno's next close flyby of Jupiter will occur on Sept. 1.

Raw images from the spacecraft’s latest flyby will be posted in coming days.

The initial pictures don't look like much, but the instrumental measurement and analysis should be more interesting.
