Jupiter and Its Two Red Spots June 2010 Jupiter and Its Two Red Spots Gemini North adaptive optics image of Jupiter and its two red spots (which appear white because this is a near-infrared image; in visible light they appear reddish).

Jupiter

Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. It has 67 moons which orbit around it. The spot in the lower left is the Great Red Spot, a giant high-pressure storm that has existed since at least the century.

I chose a picture of the planet Jupiter to represent Hercules' father. I chose this picture in particular to show the great red spot of the planet which is actually a 300 year old massive storm that is twice the size of planet Earth. This describes Jupiter as he was a violent man in Metamorphoses with a stormy personality.

Planet Jupiter is named after Jupiter (the god) because it is the largest planet in the solar system, making it the king of all the planets.

This mission will be very dangerous for the probe.  It will face large amounts of radiation, gravity and the largest magnetosphere in the solar system.  No probe in history has come this close to Jupiter 6/27/16

Jupiter's Great Red Spot. The Great Red Spot is a great anti-cyclonic (high pressure) storm akin to a hurricane on Earth, but it is enormous (three Earths would fit within its boundaries) and it has persisted for at least the 400 years that humans have observed it through telescopes. Since it is anti-cyclonic in Jupiter's Southern hemisphere, the rotation is counterclockwise, with a period of about 6 days. (A hurricane in Earth's Southern hemisphere rotates clockwise.)

Juno's Jupiter Mission Faces Its Most Critical Moment

Jupiter from Juno during Perijove 6-- Jupiter looks so unusually cool in this position. This really is a very good photo.

These views are from the approach of Juno at Jupiter during on May NASA/Juno Mission. Image processing by Sean Doran.

Jupiter's mysteries: First results from NASA's Juno mission - Jupiter was most likely the first planet to form in the solar system and contains some of the same ingredients of the collapsing nebula that formed the system. Knowing more about Jupiter can provide greater insight about its beginnings

This image (below) was captured by NASA’s Juno Spacecraft. Oval storms dot the cloudscape in this enriched color JunoCam image of Jupiter’s South Pole. So technically you are seeing Jupiter from below. That view though. This citizen scientist-processed image was taken by Juno from an altitude of about 32,400 miles above the planet’s cloud tops.

This enhanced color view of Jupiter’s south pole was created by citizen scientist Gabriel Fiset using data from the JunoCam instrument on NASA’s Juno spacecraft. Oval storms dot the cloudscape.
