PIA25885: Juno Getting Closer to Jovian Moon Io

This image of the Jovian moon Io was generated using data collected by the JunoCam imager aboard NASA’s Juno spacecraft during a flyby of the moon on March 1, 2023. At the time of closest approach, Juno was about 32,000 miles (51,500 kilometers) away from Io. The image’s resolution is about 22 miles (35 kilometers) per pixel.

Citizen scientist Kevin M. Gill created this image using data from JunoCam.
