scientist enhance Europa pic from NASA

Citizen scientists have contributed unique viewpoints on NASA's Juno spacecraft's recent close flyby of Jupiter's icy moon Europa.

Members of the public have generated deep-space photographs of the Jovian moon that are not only breathtaking, but also educational.

"Beginning with our 2013 Earth flyby, Juno citizen scientists have been essential in analysing the various photographs we receive from Juno.

"Their work provides a perspective that relies on both science and art throughout each pass of Jupiter, and now its moons.

They are an essential member of our team, paving the road for new discoveries by utilising our photographs.

JunoCam captured the closest image at a height of 945 miles (1,521 kilometres) over the Annwn Regio region of the moon.

These JunoCam photos help fill in gaps in maps created by NASA's Voyager and Galileo missions.
