Where is Juno?

As of December 15, 1014, Juno is approximately 350 million miles (565 million kilometers) from Earth. The one-way radio signal travel time between Earth and Juno is currently about 31.4 minutes. Juno is traveling at a velocity of approximately 28,243 miles per hour (12.62 kilometers per second) relative to the sun, and 43,236 miles per hour (19.33 kilometers per second) relative to Earth. Juno has now travelled 1.49 billion miles (2.40 billion kilometers, or 16.05 AU) since launch, and has another 267 million miles (430 million kilometers or 2.88 AU) before entering Jupiter’s orbit in July 2016. The Juno spacecraft remains in excellent health and is operating nominally.

Visualize Juno's current position and velocity using NASA's Eyes on the Solar System 3D interactive or the NASA/JPL Solar System Simulator.

Did you know Juno’s three giant solar panels – each one about 9 feet x 29 feet (2.7 meters x 8.9 meters) – will generate about 450 Watts of electricity at Jupiter, or enough power for five light bulbs.
