NASA has released the first images of the Jupiter moon cone taken by the Juno investigation. The U.S. space agency says they show craters, clearly defined dark and light terrain and long structures that may be due to tectonic disturbances.
Juno arrived on Jupiter in the summer of 2016 and has been orbiting the planet ever since. In its first orbit, the study was able to determine that the planet’s magnetic field was significantly stronger than expected.
Now after the trial NASA information Jupiter’s Moon is closer to Canmeid than any other spacecraft in the last 20 years. JunoCom, which was under investigation, photographed the moon with a green filter at a resolution of 1 pixel per kilometer. Versions of the same image with red and blue filters should be followed later so that a color image can be created from it.

Another image of the snow moon comes from Juno’s star reference section, which certainly keeps the investigation going. It is a black and white image with a resolution of 600 to 900 meters per pixel on the dark side of the canyon.
Thanks to Juno, researchers have already noticed that the north pole of the gas giant differs significantly from its south pole. The reasons for this are now to be explored. The analysis of poles is one of the most important objectives of this work because they have not been seen before in flying studies and are therefore often not explored.
At 5262 km in diameter, Gonimet is the largest moon in the solar system. It was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei.
