    It even has a Tycho crater.

    Well Juno imaged the "dark side", the side that faces Jupiter. I'm not sure that this has ever been accomplished before now.

    Nope, that was 48 years ago (Pioneer 10), as I posted in the previous post in the thread. Not even the first by Juno, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganyme...n)#Exploration

    I think it was meant that the first images from this flyby were produced.

    How about Juno's first images of Ganymede?

    see the first-images nasa's juno took as it sailed by ganymede

    The first two images from NASA Juno’s June 7, 2021, flyby of Jupiter’s giant moon Ganymede have been received on Earth. The photos – one from the Jupiter orbiter’s JunoCam imager and the other from its Stellar Reference Unit star camera – show the surface in remarkable detail, including craters, clearly distinct dark and bright terrain, and long structural features possibly linked to tectonic faults.

    ...The spacecraft will send more images from its Ganymede flyby in the coming days, with JunoCam’s raw images being made available here.

    The solar-powered spacecraft’s encounter with the Jovian moon is expected to yield insights into its composition, ionosphere, magnetosphere, and ice shell while also providing measurements of the radiation environment that will benefit future missions to the Jovian system.

    "Five years on, Juno science reveals answers to zodiacal lights, Jovian auroras"

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021...ovian-auroras/

    Juno, NASA’s flagship mission to Jupiter, marks five years at the solar system’s largest planet today, having been in space for nearly 10 years since its launch. Juno quickly became one of NASA’s most scientifically important missions upon its arrival, with its Ultraviolet Spectrograph and Advanced Stellar Compass instruments used to reveal many unique scientific phenomena at Jupiter and throughout the solar system.

    Recently, two teams published research highlighting the mystery of the solar system’s zodiacal light and the origins of Jupiter’s auroral dawn storms using the Juno’s instruments.

    "Ride with Juno as it flies past Jupiter and Ganymede"

    https://www.spacedaily.com/reports/R...ymede_999.html

    On June 7, 2021, NASA's Juno spacecraft flew closer to Jupiter's ice-encrusted moon Ganymede than any spacecraft in more than two decades. Less than a day later, Juno made its 34th flyby of Jupiter, racing over its roiling atmosphere from pole to pole in less than three hours. Using the spacecraft's JunoCam imager, the mission team has put together this animation to provide a "starship captain" point of view of each flyby.

    "The animation shows just how beautiful deep space exploration can be," said Scott Bolton, principal investigator for Juno from the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio.

    I just saw that video in a UT article. It’s beautiful and reminds me of 2001: A Space Odyssey. It goes past Ganymede then shows Jupiter with lightning flashes. It really has a “you are there” feel.

    Here is the direct video link. Watch it:
