See Jupiter’s southern hemisphere in beautiful detail in this new image taken by NASA’s Juno spacecraft. The color-enhanced view captures one of the white ovals in the “String of Pearls,” one of eight massive rotating storms at 40 degrees south latitude on the gas giant planet.

The image was taken on Oct. 24, 2017 at 11:11 a.m. PDT (2:11 p.m. EDT), as Juno performed its ninth close flyby of Jupiter. At the time the image was taken, the spacecraft was 20,577 miles (33,115 kilometers) from the tops of the clouds of the planet at a latitude of minus 52.96 degrees. The spatial scale in this image is 13.86 miles/pixel (22.3 kilometers/pixel).

After launching back in 2011, NASA's Juno spacecraft arrived at it's destination last June.
Set on a course for Jupiter, the craft took years to reach the gas giant, but June is in the planet's orbit and taking stunning images.

One of the latest released by NASA depicts the planet's swirling and stormy atmosphere.
The close-up image captures streams of clouds spinning off a rotating cloud system shaped like an oval.

The storm is in Jupiter's southern hemisphere.

The complexity and richness of Jupiter’s “southern lights” (also known as auroras) are on display in this animation of false-color maps from NASA’s Juno spacecraft. Auroras result when energetic electrons from the magnetosphere crash into the molecular hydrogen in the Jovian upper atmosphere.

The red coloring of some of the features indicates that those emissions came from deeper in Jupiter’s atmosphere; green and white indicate emissions from higher up in the atmosphere.

Beautiful southern lights

Don’t forget to check for our own northern lights - I think the UK just had some

Online forecasts can be found :)
