JUNO POSITION & STATUS

View of Juno's position on  March 17 from NASA's Eyes on the Solar System.

As of March 17, Juno was approximately 191 million miles (308 million kilometers) from Earth. The one-way radio signal travel time between Earth and Juno is currently about 17 minutes. Juno is currently traveling at a velocity of about 14 miles (22 kilometers) per second relative to the sun. Velocity relative to Earth is about 25 miles (41 kilometers) per second. Juno has now traveled 1.25 billion miles (2.01 billion kilometers, or 13.5 AU) since launch.

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

Mission controllers elected to cancel a small course correction, called a trajectory control maneuver or TCM, which had been scheduled for April 9. Juno’s course to Jupiter was extremely well-aimed following the Earth flyby in October, and the team has determined that the thruster firing required for the April 9 TCM (named TCM10) would be so minor that its cancellation would have little impact on the next TCM, slated for Feb. 2016.
