NASA recently shared an image taken by its Juno spacecraft on Twitter. The picture showed the swirling clouds in Jupiter's northern hemisphere, "Jet N4". Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, rotates every 10 hours. This rapid rotation of the planet produces strong jet streams that divide its clouds into dark belts and bright zones. According to NASA, more …

Juno is mortally afraid of Jupiter's shadow. So it fired its thruster over 10 hours to avoid it.

In a deadly spacecraft maneuver, Juno NASA probe has completed an unprecedented and unplanned engine burn. The intent? To save the "life" of the spaceship, or at least the remainder of its mission for Jupiter. Jupiter casts a deep, dark shadow. Dark enough to effectively kill Juno as it flies through. Instead of having the spacecraft recharged for 12 hours …

Huge ammonia storms are screwing with Jupiter's beautiful brown and white color belts

Powerful storms erupted on Jupiter, confusing the beautiful white and brown belts of the planet. Storms resembling the anvils of cumulonimbus thunderstorms on Earth blur the clean lines that separate the various atmospheric areas of Jupiter bands. Similar to the formation of anecdotic thunderstorms on Earth, towers of ammonia and water vapor rise through Jupiter's outer cloud layer before they …

"Extreme Destruction" – Volcanic Exo-Moon similar to Jupiter's Io discovered

"While the current wave of research is focused on habitability and biosignatures, our signature is a signature of destruction," says astrophysicist Apurva Oza of the University of Bern's Institute of Physics on evidence of a WASP- in the exoplanet system. 49b hidden "Exomonds", which seems to be an extreme version of Jupiter's moon Io – the volcanic epicenter of our …

Turbulent thunderclouds disturb Jupiter's colorful appearance

Astronomers used six ground-based telescopes and NASA's Hubble Space Telescope in January 2017 to capture views of Jupiter in visible light and radio waves. Jupiter's atmosphere is made up of hydrogen and helium, two of the most abundant elements in the universe, with a pinch of methane, ammonia, hydrogen sulphide, and water. The telescopes were able to provide a unique …
