NASA share new image of jupiter


You’re right! On January 10, 2024, NASA released a new image of Jupiter captured by its Juno spacecraft during its 54th close flyby on December 1st, 2023. The image showcases Jupiter’s iconic Great Red Spot, swirling cloud bands, and faint polar hazes.

Here is the image:

Citizen scientist Björn Jónsson processed the image to enhance the contrast and color, revealing details of the planet’s atmosphere. The Great Red Spot appears as a brick-red oval, surrounded by swirling clouds of orange, brown, and white.The faint polar hazes are visible as thin, wispy streaks above the north and south poles.

This new image provides scientists with valuable data on Jupiter’s atmosphere, helping them to better understand its composition, dynamics, and evolution.
