NASA's Juno Views Northern Cyclones on Jupiter
Jupiter's northernmost cyclone, perched near the gas giant's north pole, is visible to the right along the bottom edge of this image, which was taken Sept. 29, 2022, by the JunoCam public engagement camera aboard NASA's Juno spacecraft. Jupiter has eight circumpolar cyclones, and four are visible in this image, framing the northernmost cyclone. A small anticyclone (which spins counterclockwise) has wedged its way in just above the northernmost cyclone. This image was acquired on Juno's 45th pass of Jupiter from an altitude of 17,248 miles (27,758 kilometers) and shows features as small as 11.6 miles (18.7 kilometers) across.
Citizen scientist Navaneeth Krishnan S processed the images to enhance the color and contrast.
