This enhanced color Jupiter image, taken by the JunoCam imager on NASA's Juno spacecraft, showcases several interesting features on the apparent edge (limb) of the planet.

Two more images:

Juno spacecraft is so close to Jupiter (and Jupiter is so big) that it cannot capture the entire illuminated area in one image — the sides get cut off.

Again like @dorsetknob said quality isn't good because taking high quality images of Jupiter wasn't Juno's primary objective (primary objectives: Reveal information on Jupiter's magnetic field and evolution of its core)

I want Junocam to spin around and show me how Lego Jupiter and friends have held up.

95 Minutes Over Jupiter



This sequence of color-enhanced images shows how quickly the viewing geometry changes for NASA's Juno spacecraft as it swoops by Jupiter. The images were obtained by JunoCam.
