hello, this is my first message to France you ask what is the difference in speed between the beginning and the end of the flyby?
thank you

On the MAG/ASC instrument side, we're right now wrapping up the approach imaging sequence we have been conducting with the star tracker over the last couple of days. We will have an amazing video of the Earth-Moon system to show the world tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Going to write an article for this.

Fair to call it a slingshot, or is that pushing it?

I think its fair to use either 'slingshot manuever' or 'gravity assist', both are good. We expect there will be a press conference sometime tomorrow afternoon/evening MDT, where Scott Bolton will unveil our approach movie. It looks good!

Cool. I'll use both ;)

After taking images of Earth's dayside, JunoCam will execute a night-imaging sequence to capture the city lights of South Africa. #Juno

ECLIPSE - #Juno is now in Earth's shadow for 20 minutes which marks the only time the spacecraft is in eclipse during its 6-year mission.

#Juno now gaining altitude again as it bids farewell to Earth, starting the next leg of its long journey to Jupiter for arrival in 2016.

#Juno already above 1,000 Kilometers again. Relative speed to Earth decreasing as the two separate.
