This image from NASA's Juno mission captures the northern hemisphere of Jupiter around the region known as Jet N7.

The SwRI-led Ultraviolet Spectrograph (UVS) orbiting Jupiter aboard NASA's Juno spacecraft has detected new faint aurora features, characterized by ring-like emissions, which expand rapidly over time.

Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), in which the European Southern Observatory (ESO) is a partner, a team of astronomers have directly measured winds in Jupiter's middle atmosphere for the first time.

The stormy, centuries-old maelstrom of Jupiter's Great Red Spot was shaken but not destroyed by a series of anticyclones that crashed into it over the past few years.

New results from the Ultraviolet Spectrograph instrument on NASA's Juno mission reveal for the first time the birth of auroral dawn storms the early morning brightening unique to Jupiter's spectacular aurorae.

Deep Jet Streams in Jupiter's Atmosphere

This view of Jupiter's turbulent atmosphere from NASA's Juno spacecraft includes several of the planet's southern jet streams.

Where Were Jupiter And Saturn Born?

New work led by Carnegie's Matt Clement reveals the likely original locations of Saturn and Jupiter.

Solving The Strange Storms On Jupiter

At the south pole of Jupiter lurks a striking sight--even for a gas giant planet covered in colorful bands that sports a red spot larger than the earth.

Io Casts A Shadow On Jupiter

Jupiter's volcanically active moon Io casts its shadow on the planet in this dramatic image from NASA's Juno spacecraft.

This latest image of Jupiter, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope on 25 August 2020, was captured when the planet was 653 million kilometres from Earth.

NASA's Juno spacecraft - orbiting and closely observing the planet Jupiter - has unexpectedly discovered lightning in the planet's upper atmosphere, according to a multi-institutional study led by the NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), which includes two Cornell University researchers.

Jupiter, named for the king of the ancient Roman gods, commands its own mini-version of our solar system of circling satellites; their movements convinced Galileo Galilei that Earth is not the center of the universe in the early 17th century.

A Deep Dive Into Jupiter's Clouds

Researchers using a technique known as "lucky imaging" with the Gemini North telescope on Hawaii's Maunakea have collected some of the highest resolution images of Jupiter ever obtained from the ground.

High-Altitude Hazes on Jupiter

NASA's Juno mission captured this look at Jupiter's tumultuous northern regions during the spacecraft's close approach to the planet on Feb. 17, 2020.

NASA's Juno mission has provided its first science results on the amount of water in Jupiter's atmosphere.

Luminous Clouds On Jupiter

Jupiter's clouds have a luminous beauty in this image taken by Juno's JunoCam camera on its 20th close pass by Jupiter.

New Jupiter Cyclone Discovered

Jupiter's south pole has a new cyclone. The discovery of the massive Jovian tempest occurred on Nov. 3, 2019, during the most recent data-gathering flyby of Jupiter by NASA's Juno spacecraft.

The shrinking of the clouds of the Great Red Spot on Jupiter has been well documented with photographic evidence from the last decade.

Just after its close flyby of Jupiter on Nov. 3, 2019, NASA's Juno spacecraft caught this striking view of Jupiter's southern hemisphere as the spacecraft sped away from the giant planet.

This view from NASA's Juno spacecraft captures colorful, intricate patterns in a jet stream region of Jupiter's northern hemisphere known as "Jet N3."
