Juno Skims Close for More Atmosphere Data

Today the Juno probe skims close to Jupiter.  With an aim to get a much better understanding of its atmosphere.  Not the topic of this blog, but my earliest analytics dealt with modeling solar atmospheres,  so the topic of our understanding this is close to my interests.  The only place I still seek to read some of the technical reports and papers.

Should be some great new imagery that comes out of this interaction.  Some images to be released next week.   After this another 35 close passes are planned.   Continually amazed at the ability to get this quantity of data from such a distance, and in this case,  solar powered by a much more far away sun.
