NASA has released a breathtaking new image of Jupiter in which the swirling clouds of the planet's atmosphere resemble an oil painting. The photo was taken by the Juno probe in late May as the craft passed over the planet's northern hemisphere.
According to the space agency's website, "the darker cloud material is deeper in Jupiter’s atmosphere, while bright cloud material is high." These latter clouds, NASA says, are probably comprised of ammonia, water, and "unknown chemical ingredients."
