NASA

A new image captured by NASA’s Juno Jupiter explorer reveals features in the turbulent atmosphere of the solar system’s largest planet in the same colors a human observer would see them.

Juno (opens in new tab) took the image on July 5, 2022, during its 43rd close flyby of Jupiter (opens in new tab) using its JunoCam instrument. The spacecraft was at a distance of 3,300 miles (5,300 kilometers) from the tops of the gas giant (opens in new tab)‘s clouds when the image was taken, zipping by at 130,000 mph (209,000 kph).
