Space Swoon: This image of Jupiter taken by NASA’s Juno spacecraft is goddamn gorgeous
Space, is in fact, the motherfucking place.
A multitude of magnificent, swirling clouds in Jupiter’s dynamic North North Temperate Belt is captured in this image… Appearing in the scene are several bright-white “pop-up” clouds as well as an anticyclonic storm, known as a white oval.
Citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran created this image using data from the spacecraft’s JunoCam imager.
JunoCam’s raw images are available for the public to peruse and to process into image products at: http://missionjuno.swri.edu/junocam.
