These Amazing New Pictures Of Jupiter Are The Perfect Weekend Treat

Roll up, roll up. The weekend is here, but before we let you go, you’re going to get a cavalcade of glorious Jupiter images as a wonderful treat.




On this pass, Juno came within 3,400 kilometers (2,100 miles) of the planet. The transfer of data to Earth was delayed somewhat, however, as our two planets were going through solar conjunction, with the Sun obscuring communications.

Now the data is coming in, and citizen scientists have been hard at work processing some of the raw data into glorious vistas of the gas giant. The images include pictures of its storms, swirling patterns, poles, and even a snap of the volcanic moon Io.
