Shadow of Jupiter’s largest moon looms in magnificent new Juno photo

Giant Jupiter and the shadow of its biggest moon, Ganymede, dominates the view in this latest image from the system based on a NASA spacecraft’s data.

NASA’s Juno mission whizzed close by the radiation-spewing planet for the 40th time on Feb. 25, with the resulting raw images of the encounter beamed home to Earth. There, citizen scientist Thomas Thomopoulos created this stunning view based on what was seen by the JunoCam instrument.
