Jupiter's Great Red Spot Up Close

The Juno spacecraft got up close and personal with Jupiter's Great Red Spot storm on Monday, July 10, as it flew by. The storm is believed to be around 350 years old, 1.3 times as wide as planet Earth, and may be shrinking (without the aid of many monoliths). This is one of the amazing images beamed back to hungry scientist waiting to devour the data and learn more about this storm of legend. We await further news.
