NASA has published the first images of Jupiter’s largest moon, taken by its Juno spacecraft, indicating that Juno approached Ganymede on June 7, at a distance of 1,038 km.

The last time a spacecraft approached this far to the moon, in 2000, when the spacecraft “Galileo” swept the largest moon of our solar system, noting that “Juno” captured two pictures of “Ganymede”, the largest moon of Jupiter, through two cameras installed On the spacecraft, the surface of “Ganymede” and the craters and lines on its surface were shown in every detail.

The Juno spacecraft, launched by NASA in 2011, has continued its explorations in the orbit of Jupiter, since it reached the planet in July 2016.
