    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.
