New GIANT Images Of Jupiter's Red Spot Are Amazing

What Juno did Tuesday was for the data, but also for the spectacle, as it passed directly over Jupiter's most famous feature-the Great Red Spot-and took a ton of fantastic pictures along the way.

Juno is making its closest path near Jupiter's red spot and photos have been released from the journey.

The images taken July 10th, when the Juno spacecraft performed its 7th close flyby of Jupiter, were processed by citizen scientists using data from the Juno Cam.

The pictures were made publicly available on Wednesday, and while the raw images (like the one above) aren't so vibrant, several citizen scientists have enhanced their color and contrast to show off all the detail they contain from the Earth-sized, centuries-old storm. It flew just 5,600 miles above the Great Red Spot - an enormous storm that's 1.3 times as wide as Earth. A little more than 11 minutes later, Juno covered another 24,713 miles and was passing directly above the Great Red Spot itself.

Juno's mission is to understand how Jupiter formed and how it influenced the development of the rest of the solar system.

The spacecraft was about 6,130 miles (9,866 kilometers) from Jupiter's clouds, NASA says.

Juno's next close encounter with the giant gas planet will be in September.

The massive storm cloud heats part of Jupiter's atmosphere to hundreds of degrees above what it is elsewhere on the planet.

Jim Green, NASA's director of planetary science, described the highly-anticipated images as the "perfect storm" of art and science. With data from Voyager, Galileo, New Horizons, Hubble and now Juno, we have a better understanding of the composition and evolution of this iconic feature.
