At that moment, the spacecraft was traveling at about 130,000 mph (209,000 km/h) relative to Jupiter.
The second image is from the same raw data, but in this case Jonson has digitally manipulated it to increase color saturation and contrast to sharpen small-scale features and reduce features that typically appear in raw images compression artifacts and noise.
The first image (top of the page) has been processed to depict the approximate colors the human eye would see from the Juno spacecraft’s vantage point. The second image (above) is also from the same raw data. In this case, however, Jónsson digitally processed it to increase color saturation and contrast, to sharpen small-scale features, and to reduce compression artifacts and noise that typically appear in the original image. This allows the image to clearly reveal some of the most fascinating aspects of Jupiter’s atmosphere, including color variations due to differences in chemical composition, the three-dimensional nature of Jupiter’s vortices, and the small, bright “pop-up” clouds that form in the upper parts of the atmosphere .
Raw JunoCam images are available for public viewing and processed into image products.
