New Jupiter photos show the planet from fresh perspectives


Jupiter is usually shown with its layers of clouds running horizontally across the face of the gas giant. NASA has released new photos of its JunoCam showing complete views of Jupiter from unusual angles.

The composite photo above shows the southern latitudes of Jupiter. The photos were captured by the JunoCam camera at NASA's Juno orbiter on February 25, 2019. The composite photo below was captured on February 21, 2019.

The individual JunoCam photos that came in the two images were released on NASA's image processing website before being combined and processed by Kevin M. Gill, a software engineer and "data organizer" at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

You can follow the latest processed photos of JunoCam on NASA's website.
