Using data from the Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument onboard NASA’s Juno spacecraft, researchers have produced a new infrared map of the Jupiter’s moon Ganymede, combining data from three flybys, including its latest approach on July 20, 2021.

The Juno spacecraft came within 50,109 km (31,136 miles) of Ganymede on July 20, 2021.

This annotated map of Ganymede depicts the areas of the icy moon’s surface that were imaged by the JIRAM instrument aboard NASA’s Juno spacecraft during two recent close approaches of the moon.

The region shaded in blue depicts the area JIRAM covered as Juno flew past at a distance of 100,000 km on December 26, 2019; the infrared camera took 40 images during the encounter.

The region shaded in red illustrates JIRAM coverage during the July 20, 2021 flyby, when Juno came within 50,000 km of Ganymede’s surface and JIRAM took 14 infrared images.

Juno Flies Past the Moon Ganymede and Jupiter

On June 7, 2021, NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew closer to Jupiter’s ice-encrusted moon Ganymede than any spacecraft in more than two decades. Less than a day later, Juno made its 34th flyby of Jupiter.
