Juno Ground-Based Support from Amateur Astronomers
Convener: Ricardo Hueso
Mon, 21 Sep, 18:00–20:00 (CEST)

The Juno mission orbits Jupiter since 2016. Its JunoCam instrument is providing the highest resolution images of the planet ever obtained. To understand the temporal and spatial context of these images and the details of Jovian meteorology Juno relies on a global ground-support from professional and amateur astronomers. This collaboration has proven essential to the interpretation of this outstanding data. Amateur astronomers provide images that are used to plan the high-resolution observations from JunoCam and citizen scientists process many of the astonishing high-resolution images obtained by JunoCam contributing to the success of the mission.

The splinter will contain talks, questions and a short round-table at the end and is open to Juno scientists, amateur astronomers and citizen scientists collaborating with the Juno mission.

Preliminary program and confirmed speakers:

- Jupiter image processing. Christopher Go
- Recent meteorological events on Jupiter. John H. Rogers (BAA)
- The Juno mission. Glenn. S. Orton (JPL)
- JunoCam on Juno. Candice. Hansen (PSI)
- Junocam image processing. Kevin M. Gill
- The value of long-term Jupiter data. Arrate Antunano (Leicester University)
