It could look like a Van Gogh painting to you, as CNET describes it, but no, it is just another astonishing image of Jupiter sent to Earth by NASA’s Juno mission which was recently extended until 2021.
Juno captured this new astonishing image of Jupiter on May 23rd as it passed over Jupiter at only 15 kilometers above the planet’s surface.
The image reveals a tangle of clouds of different colors. The white and shiny ones, as NASA has explained, are made up of a mixture of ammonia, water, and other unknown chemical elements. In contrast, the darker, blue-green spirals are deeper clouds within Jupiter’s atmosphere.
What the image represents is a chaotic and turbulent mix, but this is due to the clouds formations which are swirling over the surface of Jupiter.
This new astonishing image of Jupiter the NASA’s Juno mission captured reveals an impressive structure in Jupiter’s climate system
The picture you see at the top of this article was edited by two scientists, Gerald Eichstädt and Sean Doran who have been involved in images post-editing for NASA for a long time and signed many astonishing similar photos.
That has made it possible for some publications to compare the astonishing image of Jupiter with Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night. But, as many have associated the picture with the impressive work of Van Gogh, others say the pic resembles the folds of the human brain.
On the other hand, at the bottom center of the image, there is a bright oval that NASA engineers highlighted. It appears that this capture, made by the JunoCam, reveals a fine-scale structure integrated into Jupiter’s climate system which also has other structures inside it.
Also, you should know that this is not the only astonishing image of Jupiter shared by NASA for the public on the NASA’s Juno mission website. You can go to this link and download many amazing photos of Jupiter.
