Jupiter’s red spot might be shrinking, but it’s still great!

NASA’s Juno spacecraft, currently orbiting Jupiter, routinely captures stunning views of the giant planet’s turbulent atmosphere, providing a treasure-trove of data for researchers and citizen-scientists like Seán Doran, who carries out sophisticated processing of raw imagery from the spacecraft’s JunoCam public-outreach camera. This view captures Jupiter’s Great Red Spot during Juno’s seventh low-altitude pass.
