The spacecraft Juno was able to do incredible the huge mysterious “dark vortex” that hit the surface of Jupiter. Photo made during 20 flight to orbit the planet at a distance of 14.8 thousand kilometers from the cloud cover of Jupiter.

The ship, which reached the gas giant in 2016, continues to put scientists on Earth spectacular image of the turbulent eddies in the planet’s atmosphere.

According to a new release from NASA, the image, especially tint in order to articulate the contrast between the funnel of the vortex and the surrounding bright cloud that literally “broke out in the sun.”

Scientists Gerald Eichstadt and Sean Doran created this image using data obtained with the camera, JunoCam, and called it “the Abyss of Jupiter”.

What is known about a space ship?
Now Juno has fulfilled about half of their risky missions, survived even the radiation storm caused by a powerful magnetic field of the gas giant.

This spacecraft has set a record for the closest approach to Jupiter, and it is thanks to him that astronomers regularly receive priceless information about the composition and appearance of the atmosphere of the giant planet.
