Amazing Image of Jupiter

A stunning new NASA image shows raging storms on Jupiter with clouds that stretch for thousands of miles. The amazing image looks just like an oil painting.

Nasa's Juno spacecraft, which has been orbiting the planet since 2016, was a little more than one Earth diameter from Jupiter, approximately 8,292 miles, when it captured this mind-bending view of the planet's tumultuous atmosphere.  

The incredible colour-enhanced image was captured at a latitude of 48.9 degrees and depicts vasts swirling cloud formations that travel at about 129,000 mph over the gas giant planet's surface.

Jupiter fills the image, with only a hint of the terminator (where daylight fades to night) in the upper right corner, and no visible limb (the curved edge of the planet) a Nasa spokesperson said.

Citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran processed this image using data from the JunoCam images.
