NASA’s Juno space probe was busy over the holidays… cruising to within 13,345 kms of the swirling clouds of the gas giant, Juno can take stunning pictures of the tempests and storms.
The data was then processed by citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran. The vivid colours wouldn’t be something our eyes could see if we were hanging on to that Juno probe. But a little creative editing makes the largest planet in solar system look almost inviting….almost.
NASA’s Juno spacecraft was a little more than one Earth diameter from Jupiter when it captured this mind-bending, color-enhanced view of the planet’s tumultuous atmosphere. See more photos from Juno here: https://t.co/NbiYrUJ5JX pic.twitter.com/3BXMFHaDpx
