A NASA spacecraft snaps an image showing the amazing colors of Jupiter’s north pole


The NASA Juno spacecraft revealed the amazing and wonderful colors of the north pole of Jupiter, and the gas giant in the image published by NASA appeared more like a flower than a huge ball of gas, and the image from Juno shows the tornadoes on the north pole of Jupiter, which are not It can be seen with the naked eye, and the image appears in false colors, invisible colors in the electromagnetic spectrum, which depicts dozens of pink, red and purple storms that can easily fit inside the earth..

According to RT, the image was initially taken by the Juno probe, which was launched by NASA in 2011, but the colors were modified by the scientist Gerald Eischtat, and NASA explained that Ischtat created the image by combining many individual images of the north pole of Jupiter to create a stunning view..

“Hurricanes appear in Jupiter’s Arctic as swirls of amazing color in this intense false color of an image from NASA’s Juno mission,” the US space agency said.“.


And she continued: “The massive and continuous hurricane located in Jupiter’s North Pole is visible in the center of the image, surrounded by smaller hurricanes ranging in size from 2,500 to 2,900 miles (4,000 to 4,600 km). Together this type of storm covers an area that would dwarf the Earth.“.

“The color choices in this image reveal the beauty of Jupiter and the subtle details in the dynamic cloud structure of Jupiter. Each new observation that Juno makes about Jupiter’s atmosphere complements computer simulations and helps improve our understanding of how storms evolve over time,” she added.“.

NASA noted: “The citizen scientist Gerald Ischstadt created this composite image using data obtained with a tool JunoCam Through four passages near the Juno spacecraft from Jupiter, which occurred between February 17, 2020 and July 25, 2020“.

“The greatly exaggerated color is partly the result of combining several individual images to create this display,” she explained“.

Scientists have been dazzled by storms on Jupiter since the discovery of the Great Red Spot, a massive storm of about 9,800 miles long, by astronomer Robert Hooke in 1655..

However, since the 1930s, observations have shown that the Great Red Spot is shrinking, which poses another mystery to scientists..
