Jupiter's Great Red Spot (Enhanced Color) | NASA Juno Mission


July 13, 2017: This enhanced-color image of Jupiter's Great Red Spot was created by citizen scientists Gerald Eichstadt and Seán Doran using data from the JunoCam imager on NASA's Juno spacecraft.

This image is approximately illumination adjusted and strongly enhanced to draw viewers' eyes to the iconic storm and the turbulence around it.

The image was taken on July 10, 2017 as the Juno spacecraft performed its 7th close flyby of Jupiter.
