Images taken by the Juno probe.
These incredible pictures of Jupiter, just not of this world – they look like dazzling pieces of art. The close up images were taken by NASA probe and show swirls of clouds in the Northern part of the planet. They are easily mistaken for works of the Impressionists because of the abundance of intricate details.
Photos taken by the spacecraft Juno in orbit of Jupiter from the 4th of July last year and launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida. Speaking of which photography was carried out at a distance 18904 kilometers is the path from new York to Perth in Australia.
Since launch, the probe continues to explore and record observations of gas a giant planet and send photos to Earth.
NASA representative noted that “because of the angle between Juno, Jupiter and the Sun when the probe was shooting these pictures, you can see the high clouds cast shadows on the surroundings”. “The behavior of clouds is easily observed in the bright parts of the photos.”
Early scientific results of the mission Juno show the largest planet of the Solar system as a turbulent world with intriguing complex structure of the surface of the spectacular lights at the poles and ogromnymi polar cyclones.
