NASAs Juno spacecraft captured this image of a vortex on Jupiter.

Soft pastels enhance the rich colors of the swirls and storms in Jupiter's clouds. This image of a vortex on Jupiter, taken by the Juno mission camera, JunoCam, captures the amazing internal structure of the giant storm.

The exquisite processing of the original JunoCam image by Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran delights our senses while at the same time giving scientists a sense of the complexity of the dynamics of Jupiter's storms.

The original JunoCam image was taken on Nov. 3, 2019, at 2:24 p.m. PST (5:24 p.m. EST), at an altitude of approximately 5,300 miles (8,600 kilometers) and a latitude of about 48 degrees north.
