Washington, March 19: NASA’s Juno spacecraft has left us in awe with a recent Rose-Colored Jupiter picture that captures a close-up view of a storm on the planet’s surface. The picture shows bright clouds in Jupiter’s northern hemisphere. The stunning image was captured by the Juno spacecraft on February 7, 2018 during its 11th close flyby of the gas giant planet. A
At the time, the spacecraft was 7,578 miles (12,195 kilometers) from the tops of Jupiter’s clouds at 49.2 degrees north latitude, reports informed. It must be noted that citizen scientist Matt Brealey processed the image using data from the JunoCam imager while citizen scientist Gustavo B C adjusted colors and embossed Matt Brealey's processing of this storm.

In July 2017, NASA’s Juno spacecraft spotted Jupiter’s great red spot. The images of revealed a tangle of dark, veinous clouds weaving their way through a massive crimson oval. The JunoCam imager aboard NASA's Juno mission snapped pics of the most iconic feature of the solar system’s largest planetary inhabitant during its flyby.
In December 2016, Juno Captures Jupiter 'Pearl'. The image, taken by the JunoCam imager on NASA's Juno spacecraft, highlights the seventh of eight features forming a ‘string of pearls’ on Jupiter -- massive counterclockwise rotating storms that appear as white ovals in the gas giant's southern hemisphere. Since 1986, these white ovals have varied in number from six to nine. There are currently eight white ovals visible.
