    Jupiter’s Great Red Spot: Both Deep and Wide

    NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured this detailed look at Jupiter’s most recognizable feature, the Great Red Spot. Data from Juno’s instruments indicate this giant, long-lived vortex extends far deeper into Jupiter’s atmosphere than scientists previously expected, to about 300 miles (500 kilometers) below the cloud tops.

    NASA to Host Briefing About New Findings From Jupiter’s Atmosphere

    NASA will hold a virtual media briefing at 3 p.m. EDT Thursday, Oct. 28, to discuss the latest results from the agency’s Juno spacecraft. The science team will reveal new findings that provide the first 3D look at how the mammoth planet’s roiling atmosphere operates underneath the top layers of clouds, and how these revelations offer insight into the atmospheres of giant planets elsewhere in our universe.

    NASA’s Juno Celebrates 10 Years With New Infrared View of Moon Ganymede

    The science team for NASA’s Juno spacecraft has produced a new infrared map of the mammoth Jovian moon Ganymede, combining data from three flybys, including its latest approach on July 20. These observations by the spacecraft’s Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument, which “sees” in infrared light not visible to the human eye, provide new information on Ganymede’s icy shell and the composition of the ocean of liquid water beneath.
