Juno POSITION & STATUS

View of Juno's position on November 4 from NASA's Eyes on the Solar System.

Updated Nov. 6

As of Nov. 4, Juno was approximately 15 million miles (24 million kilometers) from Earth. The one-way radio signal travel time between Earth and Juno is currently about 1 minute 20 seconds. Juno is currently traveling at a velocity of about 22 miles (36 kilometers) per second relative to the sun. Velocity relative to Earth is about 7 miles (11 kilometers) per second. Juno has now traveled 1.05 billion miles (1.69 billion kilometers, or 11.3 AU) since launch.

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

Recent spacecraft significant events

Juno’s Earth flyby gravity assist was completed on Oct. 9th, and the spacecraft is now on course for arrival at Jupiter in July 2016. Navigation has confirmed that Juno's current trajectory is "near-perfect" vs. planned.
