The Juno spacecraft captured this color-enhanced image on April 1, 2018, during its 12th close flyby of Jupiter. When its cameras took this shot, the spacecraft was about 7,659 miles (12,326 km) from the tops of the clouds over the planet’s northern latitude.

30′ off the ground.

He does most of the artwork by himself

His wife Kathy, also an artist,
serves as project manager.
