Hello, Everyone Today I am going to share some exciting facts on the NASA &
Juno spacecraft providing a breathtaking 3-D view of the Jupiter & violent
North Pole.

NASA sent its Juno spacecraft to explore the largest and the most vigorous
planet of our solar system, the Jupiter. Now, during one of its recent flybys
the, the Juno space probe flew over Jupiter’s stormy North Pole.

Jupiter’s the North Pole is very violent and contains some of the most
significant storms of our solar system. Juno has sent some awe-inspiring
images of the gas giant’s swirling cloud and winds present in the North Pole.

The Juno team recently presented the 3D animated video of Jupiter that will
make you tour through some of the most prominent storms and cyclones of
Jupiter.

The new animation prepared by scientists at Juno InfraRed Auroral Mapper
was presented by the Juno team at the European Geosciences Union General
Assembly in Vienna, Austria, on Wednesday, April 11. The scientists used the
JIRAM data to create an apparent 3D video of Jupiter’s the North Pole.

The polar vortex of Jupiter is not visible because of the angle that the
scientists see from Earth and also because it is shrouded in shadow.

The swirling cyclones and violent storms of the Jupiter’s the North Pole can
now be easily seen through the video. In the animation, one can see the 3-D
view of North Pole’s giant central storm and other eight cyclones that
surround it.

The video was indeed mind-blowing, and the 3-D view of the swirling clouds
and storms of the polar vortex of Jupiter looked splendid.

The scientists collected the images captured by the JIRAM instrument fitted to
the Juno spacecraft and combined them to form this beautiful 3D video of the

gas giant’s terrifying North Pole. The imagery was collecting by JUNO during
its fourth close flyby of Jupiter.

The 1 minute and 20-second video will give you a detailed view of the
atmosphere of North Pole and also it will provide scientists great insight into
how powerful cyclones and storms work at Jupiter’s poles.

The yellow areas in the animation are warmer and are more in-depth into the
atmosphere of Jupiter whereas the dark areas are colder and are present high
up in Jupiter’s atmosphere.

In the image, the highest brightness temperature is measured to be around
260K, and the lowest is about 190K, as informed by NASA. The main of JIRAM
is to detect the temperature of Jupiter’s atmosphere through its infrared
cameras.

When Jupiter’s swirling clouds radiate heat into space, they do so as for
infrared emitting radiation, and JIRAM detects this radiation.

So, these are the points to describing on the NASA's Juno spacecraft
providing a breathtaking 3-D view of the Jupiter's violent North Pole.
