This true color image of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot was created by amateur scientist Björn Jónsson using data from the JunoCam imager aboard the Juno spacecraft. It’s a natural color rendition of what the Great Red Spot and surrounding areas would look like to the human eye from Juno’s point of view at 1410 UTC on 10 July, 2017, during its seventh close approach to the planet. The spacecraft was a bit less than 14,000 km above the cloud tops when the image was taken. The active wind zones in and around the Great Red Spot are clearly visible.
