NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured this view of an area within a Jovian jet stream showing a vortex that has an intensely dark center. Nearby, other features display bright, high altitude clouds that have puffed up into the sunlight.

The color-enhanced image was taken at 12:55 a.m. PDT (3:55 a.m. EDT) on May 29, 2019, as the spacecraft performed its 20th science flyby of Jupiter. At the time, Juno was about 9,200 miles (14,800 kilometers) from the planet’s cloud tops, above approximately 52 degrees north latitude.

Citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran created and named this image using data from the spacecraft’s JunoCam imager.

JunoCam’s raw images are available for the public to peruse and process into image products at https://missionjuno.swri.edu/junocam/processing.

美国宇航局的朱诺号宇宙飞船拍摄到了这张木星喷射流中一个区域的照片,该区域显示了一个漩涡,漩涡中心非常暗。漩涡附近,其他特征显示明亮的高空团已经膨胀阳光下。

这张彩色增强图像拍摄于2019年5月29日美国太平洋时间凌晨12:55(美国东部时间凌晨3:55),当时这艘宇宙飞船正在对木星进行第20次科学飞越。当时,“朱诺号”距离星云层顶约9200英里(14800公里),位于北纬52度左右。

公民科学家Gerald Eichstadt和Sean Doran利用宇宙飞船JunoCam成像仪的数据创建并命名了这幅图像。
