New images of Jupiter reveal clusters of giant cyclones unlike anything else in our solar system

New images from NASA's Juno probe show clusters of cyclones on the planet's poles. These weather systems extend far deeper than scientists previously realized. The tightly-packed cyclones haven't merged into one system like they did on Saturn, and scientists can't figure out why.  Scientists also discovered that Jupiter's gaseous core rotates like a solid body. New data collected by NASA's Juno probe is giving scientists a unique look into the inner workings of Jupiter. Fresh images reveal c...

NASA will soon take the closest-ever photos of Jupiter's Great Red Spot — a storm the size of 2 Earths

Jupiter's Great Red Spot has blemished the planet's atmosphere for more than 350 years. It's about twice the size of Earth, and has winds that blow about 400 mph. The spot's grandeur is matched only by its mystery: Jupiter is very far away — about 489 million miles — so few probes have ever visited the planet, let alone flown near its crimson-colored super-storm. In fact, the best views of the Great Red Spot most often come from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, which orbits Earth. However, NASA's...

Monstrous Cyclones Churning Over Jupiter's Poles

Monstrous cyclones are churning over Jupiter's poles, until now a largely unexplored region that is more turbulent than scientists expected. NASA's Juno spacecraft spotted the chaotic weather at the top and bottom of Jupiter once it began skimming the cloud tops last year, surprising researchers who assumed the giant gas planet would be relatively boring and uniform down low. "What we're finding is anything but that is the truth. It's very different, very complex," Juno's chief scientist Scott...
