A NASA space probe orbiting the orbit of the largest planet in our solar system has collected incredibly detailed data about its complex and powerful storms, which a civilian scientist then used to create a stunning image of Jupiter's atmosphere.
According to the space agency, civilian scientist Kevin M. Gill uses testimony taken from the Juno spacecraft to create a striking image. Juno's onboard imaging technology recorded the data while traveling about 5,300 miles (8,500 kilometers) above the clouds on November 3, 2019.
While the planet, a gas giant, is made up mostly of hydrogen and helium, NASA says scientists you suspect that some of the strange coloration in the storm clouds may come from sulfur or phosphorus gases that occur in Jupiter.
The turbulent atmosphere of the planet boasts huge storm systems, including this whirlwind about 1
