Moon of fire 🌋

Data collected by NASA’s Juno spacecraft using its Jovian InfraRed Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument point to a new heat source close to the south pole of Io that could indicate a previously undiscovered volcano on the small moon of Jupiter. The infrared data were collected on Dec. 16, 2017, when Juno was about 290,000 miles (470,000 kilometers) away from the moon. [link in bio]

See you around! This image of Jupiter’s southern hemisphere was captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft on the outbound leg of a close flyby of the gas giant planet.

The color-enhanced image was taken on May 23, 2018, as the spacecraft performed its 13th close flyby of Jupiter. At the time, Juno was about 44,300 miles (71,400 kilometers) from the planet's cloud tops, above a southern latitude of 71 degrees.

Jovian Weather Report: This stunning JunoCam image captures the intensity of jets and vortices in Jupiter’s North North Temperate Belt.

NASA’s Juno spacecraft took this color-enhanced image at 10:31 p.m. PDT on May 23, 2018, as Juno performed its 13th close flyby of Jupiter. At the time, the spacecraft was about 4,900 miles (7,900 kilometers) of the gas giant planet, at a northern latitude of about 41 degrees. The view is oriented with south on Jupiter toward upper left and north toward lower right [link in bio]

This artist’s concept of ⚡️ lightning ⚡️ distribution in Jupiter’s northern hemisphere incorporates a JunoCam image with artistic embellishments.

Ever since NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft flew past Jupiter in 1979, scientists have wondered about the origin of Jupiter’s lightning. NASA’s Juno mission found out lightning on Jupiter is the same as in Earth in some ways, opposite in others. [link in bio] Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech/SwRI/JunoCam

J-J-J-Juno and the Jets.
See a jet stream speeding through Jupiter’s atmosphere in this new view taken by NASA’s Juno spacecraft. The jet stream, called Jet N2, was captured along the dynamic northern temperate belts of the gas giant planet. It is the white stream visible from top left to bottom right in the image.

A New Perspective: This extraordinary view of Jupiter from the south makes the Great Red Spot appear as though it is in northern territory.
NASA’s Juno spacecraft took the images used to produce this color-enhanced image on April 1 on the outbound leg of its 12th close flyby of the gas giant planet. At the time the images were taken, the spacecraft was between 10,768 miles (17,329 kilometers) to 42,849 miles (68,959 kilometers) from the tops of the clouds of the planet at a southern latitude spanning 34.01 to 71.43 degrees.

Dynamic planet! This image captures the active nature of Jupiter's northern temperate belt, revealing a white, oval-shaped anticyclonic storm called WS-4.
NASA’s Juno spacecraft took this color-enhanced image on April 1 during its 12th close flyby of the gas giant planet. At the time, the spacecraft was 4,087 miles (6,577 kilometers) from the tops of Jupiter’s clouds at 35.6 degrees north latitude.

Let the storm rage on. This image of Jupiter’s iconic Great Red Spot and surrounding turbulent zones was captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft.
The color-enhanced image is a combination of three separate images taken on April 1, as Juno performed its 12th close flyby of Jupiter. At the time the images were taken, the spacecraft was 15,379 miles (24,749 kilometers) to 30,633 miles (49,299 kilometers) from the tops of the clouds of the planet at a southern latitude spanning 43.2 to 62.1 degrees.
