Jupiter’s largest moon revealed in amazing detail in the first close – ups in 20 years



NASA’s Juno probe hovering low over Jupiter’s largest moon, Ganymede, has been snapping the first close – ups of the frozen giant for more than two decades – and they’s breathtaking.

Juno zoomed as close as 1,038 kilometers from the icy surface of solar system largest moon Monday (June 7), giving the spacecraft only a 25-minute window to take pictures – long enough for five exposures – before it zips away on its 33rd orbit of Jupiter.
