Juno’s Flyby

Watch this!

On 08 October 2013 the Juno spacecraft did a flyby of Earth in order to boost its speed by 7.3 km/sec (8,000 mph) in order to reach Jupiter in July 2016.

During the flyby the spacecraft took a series of images which were put together into the movie here.

Read more about the flyby and see a Juno / ham radio video at the source page. I wanted to take part in the ham radio part but my antennas are in “dis-array” — sorry.
