The spacecraft was launched so scientists could study Jupiter's composition and evolution, and is now orbiting the planet. Due to Jupiter's comparatively slower orbit around the Sun, Jupiter's opposition comes around once every 13 months.

This will form it more straightforward to be conscious of Jupiter's moons, which might maybe perhaps well be very faint in comparison to the planet.
