The Juno probe studies the composition, gravity, and magnetic field of the planet so that astronomers can understand how Jupiter formed.
NASA has shown incredible images of Jupiter with a sinister black spot on it. The Juno probe, which explores the largest planet on the solar system since 2016, took the picture on September 12th. The spot is actually a huge shadow cast by Jupiter Yo's moon as it passed the Sun.
Eclipses are not an unusual Jupiter event ̵
Yo himself deserves no less attention. It was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei and is the fourth largest moon in the solar system and the most geologically active site. It has over 400 active volcanoes that expel lava and gas up to 300 miles away. Io also has over 100 mountains. Some of them are higher than Mount Everest.
Although NASA explained the origins of Jupiter's mysterious black spot, social media users have come up with their own versions.
