NASA’s Juno Offers Closest Pictures of Jupiter’s Storm

NASA’s Juno spacecraft has made it’s latest buzz of Jupiter.

This time Juno focused on the planet’s nearly 10,000-mile wide hurricane.

The first of the pictures have been released, giving us the closest pictures yet of the storm.

They were taken from about 5,600 miles above the storm, while Juno flew by at 31 miles per second.

More photos will come over the next few days, some of which will be even closer.

Those will give more detail possibly giving insight into the storm which has raged on Jupiter since at least as long as man has been able to make telescopes powerful enough to see details on the planet.
