It almost looks like a post-Impressionist painting, but this image is actually a photo of Jupiter. As it makes its 13th close flyby of the gas giant, Juno captures the swirling clouds of the planet rippling over the surface.
Earth has more in common with gigantic neighbor Jupiter than you think. For one, their lightning strikes are amazingly similar that even scientists were surprised.
The giant gas planet Jupiter now has 69 known moons. This was discovered after a survey meant to look beyond the Solar System accidentally spotted them in the regions near the planet.
Juno captured thing inside of Jupiter's ring in 2016. NASA gave the public a view of the space between the planet and the ring after scientists analyzed the data from the spacecraft.
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.
NASA's Juno spacecraft will remain on its current 53-day orbit. The team behind Juno said an engine burn to reduce orbit to 14 days will no longer be performed to avoid any damage to the spacecraft.
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 spacecraft completed its third flyby to Jupiter. During the close approach, the spacecraft's JunoCam was able to capture the "string of pearls" series of storms on the surface of Jupiter.
Juno has been stuck in the wrong orbit since the failed engine burn that was supposed to take place last Oct. 19. So far, no reports yet as to when NASA plans to perform the engine burn. But a Jupiter flyby is already set next month.
NASA’s Juno probe is finally back in action after experiencing a glitch that prevented it from gathering data during its Jupiter flyby last week. It is now preparing for a close flyby of the planet on December.
The solar-powered Juno spacecraft orbiting Jupiter suddenly activated its safe mode feature the night before it was scheduled for a flyby of the planet.
NASA decided to postpone a scheduled a Juno mission that involves a burn of the spacecraft's main rocket motor. The engineers will perform a thorough valve check before waiting for the next possible window to perform the burn on Dec. 2016.
