Thick white clouds are present in this JunoCam image of Jupiter’s equatorial zone. These clouds complicate the interpretation of infrared measurements of water. At microwave frequencies, the same clouds are transparent, allowing Juno’s Microwave Radiometer to measure water deep into Jupiter’s atmosphere. The image was acquired during Juno’s flyby of the gas giant on Dec. 16, 2017.

在这张木星赤道区域的JunoCam图像中出现了厚厚的白云。这些云使得对水的红外线测量水变得复杂。在微波频率下,相同的云层是透明的,这使朱诺的微波辐射计能够测量木星大气深处的水。这张照片是在2017年12月16日“朱诺”号飞越木星时拍摄的。
