Why only a junction box? What about the exposed romex?
Yes, and you would be surprised how often I see it.

I'll give it credit for being UF cable, but exposed power-wire connections are just so &%$#@* sleazy. I think I've seen the same controller hooked to lamp cord plugged into an outdoor outlet, with the connections twisted and taped.
How the hell did you determine that? I can't see any markings on it, perhaps I am blind? That could be any type of romex ... 14/2 wg nm-b would be my guess. In either event, it should be in conduit, UF or not.
Exposed non-metallic cable, be it UF or not, just doesn't trip the outrage alarm like exposed power-wire connections, which could invite curious children to danger.
Zone #1 missing nozzle at head. Water lands right on the rain sensor.
No wonder the other 23 zones look dry.
Nice pics! What a crazed coincidence.

Even I was guilty of the "add a downstream valve" fix in the bad old days.
