Jupiter’s true colors pop in new images from NASA’s Juno mission

A new image captured by NASA’s Juno Jupiter explorer reveals features in the turbulent atmosphere of the solar system’s largest planet in the same colors a human observer would see them. 

Juno took the image on July 5, 2022, during its 43rd close flyby of Jupiter using its JunoCam instrument. The spacecraft was at a distance of 3,300 miles (5,300 kilometers) from the tops of the gas giant‘s clouds when the image was taken, zipping by at 130,000 mph (209,000 kph).
