JUNO POSITION & STATUS

View of Juno's position on December 6 from NASA's Eyes on the Solar System.

As of Dec. 6, Juno was approximately 61 million miles (38 million kilometers) from Earth. The one-way radio signal travel time between Earth and Juno is currently about three and a half minutes. Juno is currently traveling at a velocity of about 20 miles (32 kilometers) per second relative to the sun. Velocity relative to Earth is about 11 miles (17 kilometers) per second. Juno has now traveled 1.1 billion miles (1.8 billion kilometers, or 11.9 AU) since launch.

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