Another Look at the Giant Red Spot


This Jovian image was processed from data taken by the JunoCam instrument aboard the Juno spacecraft by amateur scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran. North is to the left of the image. The spacecraft was a bit more than 16,500 km from the tops of the Jupiter’s clouds when the image was taken at 23:12 UTC on 10 July, 2017, during its seventh close flyby.
