NASA shares new JunoCam image

Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Having received a fresh batch of data from Juno, NASA has shared a stunning new image of Jupiter's atmosphere captured during the probe's most recent flyby.

Last month, Juno executed its eighth close approach to the gas giant. Though the flyby happened on Oct. 24, NASA scientists had to wait until Oct. 31 to begin receiving data from the approach, as Juno-to-Earth communication was blocked by the presence of the sun. A new image showcasing Jupiter's swirling atmosphere was released by NASA this week.

Juno snapped the new image from a vantage of 20,577 miles from Jupiter's clouds. At 40 degrees south latitude, viewers can spot one of the eight massive storms spinning through Jupiter's atmosphere. The storms are known as the "String of Pearls."

The new image was processed by a pair of citizen scientists, Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran. Dozens of raw images captured by JunoCam are available online for manipulation by amateur astronomers.
