MISSION STATUS

As of April 3, 2015, Juno is approximately 353 million miles (568 million kilometers) from Earth. The one-way radio signal travel time between Earth and Juno is currently about 32 minutes. Juno is traveling at a velocity of approximately 24,000 miles per hour (about 11 kilometers per second) relative to the sun, and 64,000 miles per hour (about 29 kilometers per second) relative to Earth. Juno has now travelled 1.56 billion miles (2.51 billion kilometers, or about 16.8 AU) since launch, and has another 199 million miles (321 million kilometers or 2.15 AU) before entering Jupiter’s orbit. The Juno spacecraft remains in excellent health and is operating nominally.

NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter is slated to arrive at the gas giant planet on July 4, 2016 Pacific Time (in 458 days). Visualize Juno’s journey through space and get up-to-date data sets using NASA's Eyes on the Solar System 3D interactive.
