A NASA spacecraft orbiting the largest planet in our solar system has taken incredibly detailed data of its complex and powerful storms, with which a scientist has created an impressive picture of the Jupiter's atmosphere.
According to the Space Agency, citizen scientist Kevin M. Gill used the measurements captured by the Juno spacecraft to create the eye-catching image. Juno's on-board imaging technology recorded the data as they moved across the clouds on November 3, 2019.
While the planet, a gas giant, is primarily composed of hydrogen and helium, NASA suspect that part of the strange coloration of the storm clouds could have come from sulfur or phosphorous gases produced in Jupiter.
The turbulent atmosphere of the planet has some enormous storm systems, including this vortex, which rotates in the known region around 1
