Before you go and do something else make sure you check these amazing new pictures of Jupiter.
On 24th of October NASA’s spacecraft, Juno completed its 8th close flyby of Jupiter and brought home some amazing pictures along with some science as well.
Juno, on this pass, came within 3,400 km of the planet. The data transfer to the Earth was delayed because the Sun was obscuring the communications due to the fact that these two planets were going through a solar conjunction.
Now that the data is coming in and it has been processed we can see the landscapes of this giant made of gas. The pictures include Jupiter’s storms, poles, swirling patterns and we can even see the volcanic moon Io.
We have to satisfy ourselves with these pictures until Juno’s next close flyby on 16th of December when the spacecraft will again have the opportunity to be next to this amazing planet.
