A photograph captured by amateur astronomer Ethan Chappel has emerged online that shows an asteroid slamming into Jupiter on Wednesday (August 7).
On December 21, during winter solstice, four of Juno's cameras captured images of the Jovian moon Io, the most volcanic body in our solar system.
Ralph was first launched aboard the New Horizons spacecraft in 2006m and obtained stunning flyby images of Jupiter and its moons.
Brown barges are cyclonic regions that usually lie within Jupiter's dark North Equatorial Belt, although they are sometimes found in the similarly dark South Equatorial Belt as well.
The data collected will supplement the information NASA's Juno spacecraft is gathering. The spacecraft circles the planet from north to south once every 53 days.
The Great Red Spot is full of dense clouds, which makes it hard for electromagnetic energy to escape and teach astronomers anything about the chemistry within.
Juno probe regularly sends amazing photos of the largest planet of the solar system, but the recent pictures reveal how tumultuous and hostile the atmosphere of a planet can be.
Scientists are of the opinion that this may have important implications for the possibility of life in the ocean beneath the moon's surface.
The new study suggests that the planet -- that orbits very close to its host star, has an unusual composition. The researchers looked at data collected for WASP-18b as part of a survey to find exoplanets with stratospheres.
The image was taken on October 24, when the spacecraft was about 10,108 kilometres away from the tops of the clouds of Jupiter.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has spotted water vapour plumes erupting off the surface on Jupiter's moon Europa, in a possible evidence of the existence of life there. Releasing new images captured from the Hubble
NASA's Juno spacecraft will make its closest approach to Jupiter on Saturday. As per NASA, at the moment of closest approach, Juno will be about 2,500 miles (4,200 kilometers) above Jupiter's swirling clouds and traveling
Five years after departing from Earth, and month after slipping into orbit around Jupiter, NASA’s Juno spacecraft is all set to reach the farthest point in its orbit for the first time on Sunday. The
Washington: NASA's Juno probe successfully entered the orbit of our solar system's largest planetary inhabitant after after a five-year, 1.4 billion-mile voyage. This historic moment has been marked with a special Google Doodle that says
NASA celebrated a key triumph on Tuesday as its Rs 7,400 crore unnamed Juno spacecraft entered the orbit around Jupiter after a five-year voyage in order to explore the giant planet.
A team of astronomers led by the team from Goddard Space Flight Centre in Maryland have used data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope to identify a huge planet, almost the size of Jupiter, that orbits two Suns simultaneously.
