Did Juno About This?

Juno Earth Flyby - 9 October

Juno Earth Flyby – 9 October

   Tomorrow, 9 October, the Juno spacecraft flies past the Earth coming within 350 miles of our planet as it uses the Earth’s gravity field to help accelerate and aim toward its rendezvous with the planet Jupiter in 2016.
   Be sure to visit the mission web site to learn more about this mission as well as how to download and use imaging processing on images of the Earth taken by the spacecraft during the flyby.
If you are a Ham radio operator there will be an opportunity to send a ‘Hi’ (…. ..) in Morse Code to the spacecraft.
