Get up close and see Jupiter in this new series of enhanced-color images from our Juno spacecraft. It recently performed its eighth flyby of the gas giant planet and captured this sequence of images taken on Sept. 1 from 6:03 p.m. to 6:11 p.m. EDT. At the times the images were taken, the spacecraft ranged from 7,545 to 14,234 miles (12,143 to 22,908 km) from the tops of the clouds of the planet.

Underneath its dense cloud cover, Jupiter safeguards secrets to the fundamental processes and conditions that governed our solar system during its formation. Juno is working to unlock Jupiter's secrets, increasing our understanding of the origin and evolution of the planet. As our primary example of a giant planet, Jupiter can also provide critical knowledge for understanding the planetary systems being discovered around other stars.

I know we're a ways off from this, but I can't help but hope some day we can build a probe that could more closely explore Jupiter and other celestial bodies like it. It would be pretty amazing to see the inside of one of its eyes.
