Scientists have shown amazing clouds of Jupiter

Ученые показали удивительные облака Юпитера

While Juno continued to photograph Jupiter from different angles, the scientists on Earth work to give the pictures the beauty and learn the fine details of the face of the planet.

Recently, the spacecraft Juno did amazing (although very crude) pictures of the cloud front of Jupiter. Scientists Gerald Eichstad and Sayn Doran processed and turned into real works of art.

In this picture the clouds of Jupiter resemble liquid marbles, shimmering in various colors. According to NASA, Juno took this photo during the 13th flyby around the planet at a distance of 15.5 km from the upper boundary of the clouds.

The brightness of the clouds also possible to distinguish between different cloud levels. More bright areas correspond to clouds that are above the rest, while the dark sail much lower. The brightness of the clouds probably gives a mixture of ammonia and water.

The really unique: the Earth’s intricate details not seen, and in terrestrial telescopes cloud front of Jupiter — it’s just a white haze.
