NASA’s robotic space satellite named Juno has taken a picture of Jupiter showing incredible specifics. The close-up capture of the stormy planet was released just now but was taken at the beginning of the year.

The majority of images of Jupiter are captured from a remote place, such as Earth or from sufficient distance that almost half of the stormy planet is observable. Even so, this capture released by NASA is put together from many images got quite close-up, where under 50 percent of the planet is perceivable.

NASA said that Jupiter still looks like a sphere from the view, but perspective deformity makes it appear similar to marble.

In the picture, a red spot can be seen, and NASA claims that the Great Red Spot is a hurricane with dimensions more significant than our entire planet. The cyclone has been seething on the marble planet since the NASA telescopes have been capable of seeing it. This phenomenon is also not promptly comprehended after its sighting.

The research to understand the massive storm cloud as it seems like small whirlpools fuel into the storm and impact it somehow is underway. This could also aid in discovering more about weather systems here on our planet. The image also shows on Jupiter’s cloud peaks an outstanding dark lying flat belt which holds a white oval cloud and a white area cloud, both orbiting the planet.

The white cloud seems to be a whirling immense pressure system, similar to an Earth’s anticyclone and is one of the ‘jewel’ ovals in the Southern part of the Giant Red Spot. The picture was captured by Juno space probe back in February, as part of its 17th close fly of the Solar System’s biggest planet, and was selected as NASA’s ‘Astronomy Picture of the Day.’
