NASA’s Juno spacecraft continues to beam back incredible images of Jupiter, revealing this stormy gas giant in greater detail than we’ve seen before. The white oval in the brown band near the lower right corner of this image is a giant storm. It’s one of the ‘String of Pearls’, the name given to eight rotating storms located in the planet’s southern hemisphere.
