Recent images of Juno will be compared with images from previous missions to check for changes.

The Juno drone belonging to the United States space agency (NASA) has sent a close sighting of Ganymede, one of the four moons orbiting Jupiter and the largest natural satellite in the Solar System.

The image was taken from a distance of about 1,000 kilometers.

That’s the shortest distance any spacecraft has reached in more than 20 years.

Juno just happened to be passing by; studying Jupiter had become a daily chore. But the European Space Agency will send a special mission soon.
