NASA's Juno probe sends back first image of Jupiter and its moons from orbit
The JunoCam is working. NASA released a photo of Jupiter and three of its moons that was taken a few days after the Juno spacecraft entered the planet's orbit on July 4.
The view was obtained at 1:30 p.m. July 10 when Juno was 2.7 million miles from Jupiter.
The color image shows atmospheric features on Jupiter, including the famous Great Red Spot, and three of the massive planet's four largest moons — Io, Europa and Ganymede, from left to right in the image.
NASA says the first high-resolution images of Jupiter are still a few weeks away.
