More Amazing Images From Juno’s Trip To Jupiter

As more data comes back to Earth from Juno we continue to get new and amazing images as well as data that helps us understand the planet’s composition.

Earlier this week the probe captured it’s first close up images of the gas giant, which were able to tell us that there are cyclones and ammonia rivers on Jupiter.

Here’s another set of images that show Jupiter in amazing detail including a never before seen view from inside the rings.
