Juno, which earlier this month marked its first year in orbit of the gas giant, will offer “humanity´s first up-close and personal view of the gigantic feature,” NASA said in a statement last year.

NASA noted that this pass was “very challenging,” as Jupiter only entered JunoCam’s field of view just an hour before closest approach. There was an opportunity to snap a distant image of the volcanic moon Io on this pass, but that view has not yet been released.
