Spacecraft Animations 2: Juno!

I’ve got some more fun spacecraft CGI animations for you.  😉  These are from the Juno team, who appears to have gotten really excited about animations because they made a lot of them.  I’ll sort them by mission phase for you.  Enjoy!

Spacecraft’s entire cruise trajectory:
