Where is Juno?

As of March 25, 2016, Juno is approximately 410 million miles (659 million kilometers) from Earth. The one-way radio signal travel time between Earth and Juno is currently about 37 minutes.

Juno is traveling at a velocity of approximately 53,000 miles per hour (about 23.6 kilometers per second) relative to Earth, 16,000 miles per hour (about 7.1 kilometers per second) relative to the Sun, and 13,000 miles per hour (about 5.7 kilometers per second) relative to Jupiter. Juno has now travelled 1.73 billion miles (2.78 billion kilometers, or 18.56 AU) since launch, and has another 34 million miles to go (55 million kilometers, or 0.37 AU) before entering orbit around Jupiter.

The Juno spacecraft is in excellent health and is operating nominally.

Juno is slated to arrive at the gas giant planet on July 4, 2016, at 8:35 p.m. PDT (Earth Received Time). Track and visualize Juno’s journey through space using NASA's Eyes on the Solar System 3D interactive.

Juno’s onboard color camera, called JunoCam, invites the public to serve as a virtual imaging team. Vote and comment on where to point JunoCam and which features to image on Jupiter using the new JunoCam web platform on this site.
