Spacecraft Juno managed to make an incredible shot of a huge mysterious "dark vortex", which raged on the surface of Jupiter. The photos were taken during the 20th orbit of the planet at a distance of 14.8 kilometers from the cloud cover of Jupiter, reports petescrypticcrosswords.ca.
The ship, which reached the gas giant in 2016, continues to provide scientists on Earth with impressive images of turbulent turbulences in the atmosphere of the planet.
NASA has previously published a video of the flight over the north pole of Jupiter.
According to NASA's new releases, the image was specially tinted in order to clearly convey the contrast between the vortex funnel and the bright clouds surrounding it, which literally "flared in the sun."
Scientists Gerald Eichstadt and Sean Doran created this image using data from the JunoCam camera and called it "Jupiter's Abyss".
Recall, near Jupiter, a mysterious object resembling a UFO was noticed – images from the NASA space probe alarmed the Network.
Also, scientists have discovered an extrasolar planet, similar to Jupiter.
