‘Cosmic Bouquet’; NASA shares fascinating images of cyclones on Jupiter…..

“Jupiter’s roses: A cosmic bouquet just for you,” NASA captioned their Instagram post and shared a composite image. And, it didn’t fail to point out that it is mesmerising. In the caption, NASA further detailed that the swirls of colours spotted are “a rendering of an image” from Juno mission – the space agency’s probe orbiting the planet Jupiter.

“The huge, persistent cyclone found at Jupiter’s north pole is visible at the center of the image, encircled by smaller cyclones that range in size from 2,500 to 2,900 miles (4,000 to 4,600 kilometers). Together, this pattern of storms covers an area that would dwarf the Earth,” they said.

Jupiter’s roses: A cosmic bouquet just for you.⁣ ⁣ Not actual roses, these are in fact cyclones on Jupiter’s north pole. These swirls of striking colors in this extreme false color are a rendering of an image from our Juno mission. The huge, persistent cyclone found at Jupiter’s north pole is visible at the center of the image, encircled by smaller cyclones that range in size from 2,500 to 2,900 miles (4,000 to 4,600 kilometers). Together, this pattern of storms covers an area that would dwarf the Earth.⁣ ⁣ Citizen scientist Gerald Eichstädt made this composite image using data obtained by the JunoCam instrument during four of the Juno spacecraft’s close passes by Jupiter, which took place between Feb. 17, 2020, and July 25, 2020. The greatly exaggerated color is partially a result of combining many individual images to create this view.⁣ ⁣ Image data: NASA/JPL-Caltech/SwRI/MSSS⁣ Image processing by Gerald Eichstädt⁣ ⁣ #NASA #Citizenscientist #Jupiter #JunoCam #Roses #Space #Cyclones⁣
