(NASA) – A variety of magnificent cloudy clouds in Jupiter’s dynamic northern-tempered belt are captured in this image from NASA’s Juno spacecraft. Featured in the scene are several light white popup clouds and an anti cyclical storm, known as a white oval.

This color enhancement image was taken at 1:58 PDT on October 29, 2018 (4:58 EDT) as the spacecraft performed its 16th near Jupiter airfield.

By that time, Juno was about 4 400 miles (7000 kilometers) from the clouds of the planet, at a latitude of about 40 degrees north.

National researcher Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran created this image using data from the spacecraft JunoCam creator.

JunoCam’s raw images are available to the public to read and process image products here.
