We’re calling all amateur astronomers to upload their telescopic images and data of Jupiter. These uploads are critical for the upcoming Discussion section (now live!) and will help NASA successfully plan the future of the mission.
If you're a veteran astrophotographer or if you're just getting started with your first telescope, we highly recommend you read our Submission Guidelines before submitting data. In the PDF you'll find information about the best capture and process workflows as well as links to free software and tutorials.
In the Discussion section, you can select a point of interest in Jupiter's atmosphere and share it with the community or browse through other users' suggestions and comment on them. These points will form the foundation for the voting phase.
This is where the magic happens! During the voting phase you will determine the best locations in Jupiter's atmosphere that JunoCam will capture. You will get a limited number of votes per orbit to devote to your favorite points of interest. You can also track the results as other users cast their ballots too.
Once JunoCam has taken the images you have voted on, we'll post them for you in Processing. From here you can download the raw images, process them with your choice of software and reupload them to the site for other users to view.
