Jupiter 2019 July 21

Some of the latest Jupiter data from the HST joint observation program for the Juno probe. Jupiter here in nearly RGB filters; the equatorial limb areas look a tad bluer than they normally would because the blue channel is a near-uv filter. This also makes the Great Red Spot and some of the cloud bands look a little redder.


Ganymede was in the frame, but hiding invisibly in Jupiter's shadow.

North is up.
