Swirling cloud formations in the northern area of Jupiter’s north temperate belt have been photographed by NASA’s Juno spacecraft.
This colour-enhanced image was taken on Wednesday 7 February at 1:42pm UTC, as Juno performed its eleventh close fly-by of Jupiter. At the time the image was taken, the spacecraft was about 8,186 kilometres from the tops of the clouds of the planet at a latitude of 39.9 degrees.
Citizen scientist Kevin M. Gill processed this image using data from the JunoCam imager.
