The following chart shows the distance of Juno from Earth as a function of time. In the chart the distance data is measured in Astronomical Units and sampled with an interval of 1 day.

Distance of Juno from Earth between January 2013 and September 2019

The value of the reported distance might be somewhat inaccurate around the times of closest approach for objects passing extremely close to Earth. The value of the distance of Juno from Earth is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.

Closest approach of Juno to Earth

Between January 2013 and September 2019 the closest approach of Juno to Earth happens on Thu Oct 10 2013 at a distance of 0.00122596 Astronomical Units, or 183,401 kilometers:

Juno rise and set times

Location: Greenwich, United Kingdom [change]
Latitude: 51° 28’ 47” N
Longitude: 0° 00’ 00” E
Timezone: Europe/London

Today's Juno rise, transit and set times from Greenwich, United Kingdom [change] are the following (all times relative to the local timezone Europe/London):

Azimuth: 112.4°
Max altitude: 16.1°
Azimuth: 247.6°
Juno is below the horizon from Greenwich, United Kingdom

The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Juno touches the horizon, consideting the effect of the atmospheric refraction. As the atmoshpere conditions cannot be modeled precisely the times reported here should be considered correct with an approximation of few minutes.

Visualization of Juno Orbit

This 3d orbit diagram is a feature of our 3D Solar System Simulator and shows the orbit of Juno with respect of the Sun and the orbits of the major planets. The position of Juno and the planets along their orbits in this diagram accurately represents the current configuration of the objects in the Solar System. This is an experimental feature and it requires a WebGL enabled browser. Please provide us feedback!
