Jupiter’s Clouds of Many Colors

NASA’s Juno spacecraft was racing away from Jupiter following its seventh close pass of the planet when JunoCam snapped this image on May 19, 2017, from about 29,100 miles (46,900 kilometers) above the cloud tops. The spacecraft was over 65.9 degrees south latitude, with a lovely view of the south polar region of the planet.

This image was processed to enhance color differences, showing the amazing variety in Jupiter’s stormy atmosphere. The result is a surreal world of vibrant color, clarity and contrast. Four of the white oval storms known as the “String of Pearls” are visible near the top of the image. Interestingly, one orange-colored storm can be seen at the belt-zone boundary, while other storms are more of a cream color.

JunoCam's raw images are available for the public to peruse and process into image products at:

木星的多彩云

美国宇航局的Juno航天器在星空第七次近距离通过后离开了木星,并于2017年5月19日从云顶上方29,100公里(46,900公里)迅速攫取了这一形象。航天器在南纬65.9度以上,可以看到行星南极地区的美景。

该图像被处理以增强颜色差异,显示木星风雨如磐的气氛中惊人的多样性。结果是一个充满活力的色彩,清晰度和对比度的超现实世界。被称为“珍珠串”的四个白色椭圆形风暴在图像顶部附近可见。有趣的是,在带带边界可以看到一个橙色的风暴,而其他风暴更是一种奶油色。
