These spectacular swirls on Jupiter are atmospheric features. Clouds swirl around a circular element in a jet stream region.
Is he a dolphin on Jupiter? No, but it really looks like it. It is actually a cloud that seems to cross cloudy bands along the temperate southern belt.
This composite image, derived from data collected by the Jirian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument aboard NASA's Juno mission to Jupiter, shows the central cyclone located at the North Pole of the planet and the eight cyclones that # 39; around.
This striking image of Jupiter was captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft as it was making its eighth flyby of the gas giant.
Algorithmic scaling and coloring reveals a keen eye on the big red spot of July 2017.
The big red spot of Jupiter is a storm with a cluster of clouds 10,000 km wide in July 2017.
The color enhancements provide a detailed overview of the big red spot.
NASA has configured this comparison of its own image of the Earth with an image of Jupiter taken by astronomer Christopher Go.
The concept of this artist shows the pole-to-pole orbits of NASA's Juno probe at Jupiter.
This image shows Jupiter's south pole, as seen by NASA's Juno spacecraft at an altitude of 52,000 km (32,000 miles). Oval features are cyclones, up to 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) in diameter. Multiple images taken with the JunoCam instrument in three orbits have been combined to show all areas in daylight, enhanced color, and stereographic projection.
An even closer view of Jupiter's clouds from NASA's Juno spacecraft.
The northern polar region of Jupiter appears as NASA's Juno spacecraft approaches the giant planet. This view of Jupiter was taken when Juno was 703,000 kilometers (437,000 miles) on its first flight among the 36 orbital overflights on the planet.
This infrared image offers an unprecedented view of the southern aurora of Jupiter, captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft on August 27, 2016. The unique polar orbit of Juno offers the first opportunity to observe in detail this region of the giant gas planet.
NASA's Juno spacecraft has returned its first photo of Jupiter, left, since it came into orbit around the planet. The photo is made from some of the first images taken by JunoCam and shows three of the four largest moons on the planet: Left, Io, Europa and Ganymede.
An illustration shows NASA's Juno spacecraft entering the orbit of Jupiter. Juno will study Jupiter from a polar orbit, about 5,000 km from the gas giant's cloud summit.
It was Juno's final vision of Jupiter before powering off the instruments to prepare for orbit. The picture was taken on June 29, 2016, while the spacecraft was 3.3 million miles (5.3 million kilometers) from Jupiter.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured images of Jupiter's aurora on the gas giant's poles. The comments were supported by measures taken by Juno.
This rendering of the artist shows Juno orbiting Jupiter.
Jupiter and the four largest moons of the gaseous planet – Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto – are visible in a Juno photo taken on June 21, 2016. The probe was 6.8 million miles (10.9 million kilometers ) of the planet.
Juno flew over Earth in October 2014. This trio of images was taken by the probe JunoCam.
Three Lego figures fly aboard the Juno spacecraft. They represent the Roman god Jupiter; his wife, Juno; and Galileo Galilei, the scientist who discovered the four largest moons of Jupiter on January 7, 1610.
Jupiter was 716 million kilometers from Earth when Juno was launched on August 5, 2011 in Cape Canaveral, Florida. But the spacecraft traveled a total distance of 2,800 million kilometers (2,800 million kilometers) to reach Jupiter. flying over the Earth to help gain speed.
The technicians use a crane to lower Juno onto a support where the spaceship was loaded with fuel for its mission.
The technicians are testing the three massive solar panels that power the Juno spacecraft. On this photo taken on February 2, 2011, each solar generator is deployed in a Lockheed Martin Space Systems facility in Denver.
