NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured these incredible new images of Jupiter on April 10th and processed b y Kevin M. Gill. Simply put, they look like paintings, thanks to Juno’s onboard imaging technology, which recorded the data while traveling 5,375 miles above the clouds at a latitude of 50° degrees North at 127,000 mph.
The intense storms, also known as a folded filamentary region, you see in the image above are located at both north and south, with cyclones at each pole. These are chaotic regions to say the least where the rotation, typically seen in cyclones, only appears sporadically in some substructures. In other words, the storms are just partially closed, thus blowing turbulent streamers into their adjacent jet-streams.
