Juno at Jupiter!

MissionJunoAfter an almost five-year journey to the solar system’s largest planet, NASA’s Juno spacecraft successfully entered Jupiter’s orbit during a 35-minute engine burn. Confirmation that the burn had completed was received on Earth at 8:53 p.m. PDT (11:53 p.m. EDT) on Monday, July 4. Juno captured a unique time-lapse movie of the Galilean satellites in motion about Jupiter. The movie begins on June 12 with Juno 10 million miles from Jupiter, and ends on June 29, 3 million miles distant.
