The intersection of science and art begins here. The Juno spacecraft entered into a polar orbit around Jupiter in 2016 carrying JunoCam, a visible light camera. The objective for JunoCam was to give the public a way to be involved in a planetary exploration mission. Members of the public are invited to process JunoCam images. This partnership has resulted in a unique blend of science and art. Enhanced color image processing and artistic interpretations by volunteer citizens, artists and scientists brings out subtle detail in the clouds and storms, including an amazing array of artistry surrounding the planet itself. Contributions by artists yield products suitable for framing and for display. Come and see what helps us all appreciate the beauty of the largest planet in our solar system.
