The Jupiter mosaic includes shots taken between 26,900 km and 95,400 km from the planet's cloud heads of the southern hemisphere and storms the famous Great Re d Spot.

This spectacular, hundreds of years old anticyclone is gradually revealing its secrets through the Juno mission.

The probe has already determined that its roots reach at least 350 km into the atmosphere.

Scientists hope that their various investigations reveal the key mechanisms that drove the stain and keep it from dissipating.

The Juno mission runs a raw data site that hobby processors can participate in.
