NASA news: An amateur astronomer has detected a new storm on Jupiter – Clyde's storm


NASA said: “At the time the images were taken, Juno was between about 28,000 miles (45,000 kilometres) and 59,000 miles (95,000 kilometres) from the planet’s cloud tops at latitudes of between about 48 degrees and 67 degrees south.”

All of Juno’s images are free to peruse and process into stunning photos at the JunoCam website.

NASA’s Juno reached the Gas Giant in 2016 after launching from Earth in 2011.

The orbiter was built by Lockheed Martin and is operated by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California.
