NASA’s Juno Jupiter probe has captured unprecedented views of the premier moon in the photo voltaic program.

All through a near flyby of Jupiter on Dec. 26, 2019, Juno mapped the north polar locations of the icy satellite Ganymede in infrared light-weight, anything no other spacecraft had completed ahead of.
