NASA's Juno spacecraft sent its first batch of science data to Earth. Part of the discoveries is the Earth-sized storms on Jupiter's south pole.
Juno completed its fifth flyby to Jupiter. The spacecraft arrived on the gas planet's orbit in 2016 and its next flyby is set to occur on July 11.
Less than nine months after Juno entered Jupiter's orbit, it will perform its fifth flyby. The flyby is expected to produce more scientific data about some features of the planet including its complex magnetic field.
Juno captured a weather cyclone on the surface of Jupiter called the little red spot. Citizen scientists enhanced the image to reveal the spot in greater detail.
NASA lets the public decide where JunoCam should look on the next flyby to Jupiter. The next approach will take place on Feb. 2.
A citizen scientist created a stunning image of Jupiter. The image was created from the archive of photographs taken by the Juno spacecraft.
NASA's Juno probe is currently orbiting the giant gas planet, Jupiter. The spacecraft captured stunning images of the planet during its first flyby and is expected to produce more science-worthy material in the next 35 more flybys.
Juno has successfully completed the first of 36 Jupiter flybys on Aug. 27 after entering the planet's orbit last July 4.
NASA made Juno data available for download including 1,300 raw images taken by the JunoCam during the spacecraft's approach to its destination planet, Jupiter.
Juno sent the first image taken within Jupiter's orbit showing the planet and three of its four largest moons.
NASA released the video of Juno's final approach to Jupiter, where the gas planet and its four biggest moons are visibly moving in what seems to be a welcome to Earth's spacecraft.
The Juno spacecraft is less than 10 days to Jupiter. From a distance of 6 million miles on June 21, JunoCam was able to spot Jupiter and its four largest moons.
Juno spacecraft, which was launched in 2011, will arrive on Jupiter this July. The spacecraft is almost near the planet which has already exited the gravitational pull of the Sun and is now under the Jupiter's realm.
