I assume better are coming.

Due to its wacky orbit, it only spends a few days close enough to Jupiter to get good pics. However, that isn't its mission.

I don't know why they even bothered posting the image.

Because some of us enjoy first light images (which seldom reflect the
ultimate capabilities of an instrument).

None of you know how to work the images as the natural satellites run their circuits around the planet much like Venus and Mercury run their circuit around the Sun -

While the differences are many such as Jupiter having a circle of illumination absent from the Sun, it is grafting in the Earth's orbital motion to provide the central reference for planetary orbits using a stationary Sun and a moving Zodiac instead of the original heliocentric framework built on the motion of the Sun through the same.

Of course Goto enthusiasts wouldn't be able to rise beyond their rotating celestial sphere in understanding what has just been done.

For RichA, there is no such thing as a despicable term 'subhuman', there is only humane and the ability to act and think like a human being.

I like how you're thinking Gerald

It is a long of fun changing time scales from short term to longer term observations, smaller scale motions (Jupiter's satellites) to larger scale motions (Venus and Mercury around the Sun) and many,many other components to create many different narratives . It is not exactly thinking on your feet but the Juno images present themselves in such a way that it is easy enough to shift from satellites orbiting the planet to planets orbiting the Sun.

The normal motion of the inner planets as they run their circuits as they move in one direction and then the opposite direction is sufficient to explain why they move in one direction against the background stars, appeal to stop and run in the opposite direction so the spacecraft has already given a jewel of a perspective to use elsewhere -
