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.
