magnificent swirling clouds in the Northern North Jupiter Temperature Belt captured in the picture
(NASA) – A large number of swirling clouds in the North North Belt Jupiter's dynamic temperature is captured in this image from NASA's Juno spacecraft. Appearing in the scene are some bright white "pop-up" clouds and anticyclone storms, known as white ovals.
This color-enriched image was taken at 1:58 a.m. PDT on October 29 2018 (04:58 WIB) when the spacecraft did 16 flying near Jupiter.
At that time, Juno was about 4,400 miles (7,000 kilometers) from the planet's cloud peak, at latitude around 40 degrees north.
Citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran made this image using data from the JunoCam spacecraft imager.
JunoCam raw images are available to the public to be read and processed into product images HERE.
