    Color enhanced:
    NASA’s Juno spacecraft took this color-enhanced image at 10:23 p.m. PDT on May 23, 2018 (1:23 a.m. EDT on May 24), as the spacecraft performed its 13th close flyby of Jupiter. At the time, Juno was about 9,600 miles (15,500 kilometers) from the planet's cloud tops, above a northern latitude of 56 degrees.

    The full gallery can be found here https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/j...ges/index.html

    My personal favorite is this one


    It's actually quiet interesting how the photos are done. Juno rotates pretty quickly so it takes a bunch of photo strips as it orbits, the strips are then overlayed onto a spherical projection. And as usual the colors are all separate layers that get combined.

    Raw images from JunoCam can be found here https://www.missionjuno.swri.edu/junocam if you have some inclination to play with them.

    I remember, what seems like ages ago, the interweb sensation that was "African Watering Hole Cam".

    I cannot tell you how much I would love a "Jupiter Cam" live streaming from as low a Jupiter orbit as it possible could, with the highest definition camera is could possibly carry.

    Would certainly be great, but due to the long exposure times and the fast rotation of Juno it wouldn't work. But hopefully one day we'll have it.

    Before the announced slip last year to March-June 2019, JWST had been slated to launch in October 2018 – a date itself that was 11 years after the originally planned launch target of 2007 when the project was first conceived in 1997.
    They must be facing some serious technical issues that have only cropped up during testing to be pushed back at this stage.

    What worries me is that by the time it launches, a IR telescope in LEO might perform just as well due to improvements made in electronics as a lot of the sensors on the Webb presumably came from the middle of last decade.

    Ouamuamua is slowly accelerating, non-gravitationally, out of the solar system. (slowly to the tune of 4.92+/-.16 * 10-6 m/sē

    https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/o...ed-speed-boost

    Non-paywall copy of the paper: https://www.eso.org/public/archives/...0/eso1820a.pdf

    The most plausible physical mechanism listed is cometary emissions. However, no dust/gas/water emissions have been detected. The lack of water in the observations is consistent with the magnitude of acceleration and the detection limits of the telescopes. The lack of dust, however, is inconsistent with a cometary model and the detection limits of the instruments.

    I, too, want to be a proto-molecule.

    Here's a stunning picture on the NASA site showing the area where they found water on Mars: https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/image/050...nMars2_gcc.jpg
