The stunning footage captured by NASA’s Juno Spacecraft was recently released as the mission reaches its halfway point.
The incredible images show massive whirlpools of clods soaring above the planet as the probe completed is 16th pass around the gas giant.
The spacecraft is currently in a highly-elliptical, 53-day orbit around the gas giant, and it offers us an unprecedented view of Jupiter’s fascinating atmospheric phenomena.
While Juno orbits the planet and snaps a plethora of mind-bending images, the spacecraft’s instruments are busy peeking deep beneath the planet’s cloud cover, studying not only the planet’s auroras but helping us understand how Jupiter came into existence, what it looks like from inside, and what the gas Giants atmosphere and magnetosphere are like.
