Jupiter's Close Encounter

Spacecraft Juno’s latest image of clouds on Jupiter is amazing.

A multitude of magnificent, swirling clouds in Jupiter’s dynamic North North Temperate Belt is captured in this image from NASA‘s Juno spacecraft.

Appearing in the scene are several bright-white “pop-up” clouds as well as an anticyclonic storm, known as a white oval.
