Storm Movies [ID: 3]

Juno’s orbit is evolving such that the closest approach latitude is moving to the north and we spend a lot of time seeing the southern hemisphere as the spacecraft is outbound from perijove. This extra time allows us to take multiple images in sequence and combine them into movies.

    The colours are important.

    Bright orange is radiation, and the mediation of that shows possible origins, to retrace.

    Orange becomes red, red goes bright red to flat red. Then the colours go brown, possible origin of earth soil colour also.

    Have a good day.

      The bands of Jupiter that are white and orange and burnt orange are explained elsewhere.




      How happy is the community with current explainations?

      The surface of Jupiter on this site is said to be about -100°C.


      Yet we see the air can get way, way hotter. Water on the earth allows surface temperatures of even +1-3 °C average, clouds at near +300 °C in the radiation.


      Its a higher extreme of surface and atmospheric temperatures in many places in the Solar System.


      Thinking out loud.

      Gotta watch the spelling.

      What i think is the Earth also has convection currents, less visible than Jupiters, but it is a similar convection banding.

      The last post i put here has been 25% of the post. Many people are mo longer farmers, and water barrels freezing in root cellars has no meaning to them. This is OK. But don`t forget silences are what all good investigative reporting does.

      I submitted my work to the last NASA townhall meeting to separate swampgas from Van Allen Radiation as an advance on science that needs dissecting.

    Interesting! I guess its named as 'Oval-B'. Like a spinning vortex

    This is looking like a cyclones in jupiter and this type of cyclones arises from water bodies such as seas, oceans. So there may be a chance of existence of water in jupiter. If water is found to exist in jupiter, then there may be a chance of existence of living beings in jupiter.

    I think it would be interesting to see a time lapse of the cyclones at the south pole. Being able to study how the cyclones interact, how their winds affect one another, and how they are maintained is of interest to me. How do these cyclones remain so stable while all rotating in the same direction? Why don't they cancel one another out? These are some questions we might be able to begin answering if we can get detailed time-lapses of polar cyclones.

    Wow! Great. It is nice.I like this mission very much.Congratulations NASA Juno.I love NASA very much.And my ambition is NASA.

    will you allow big images to process too? where can we find big files? actual images are 1600px and from large distance....

    Is that in true colors?

    Los vórtices Más grande se han entrelazados entre carga positiva y negativa mientras las cargas que viajan al rededores del planeta con su compuestos químicos, estás se encuentran con su carga opuestas formando las llamadas turbulencias que solo chocan y se devuelven mientras que las (+)(-) se unen formando más grande el vórtice esa es mi opinión de estudios.

    How many storms have occurred in the last 4 months?

    During the week of July 16, 1994, comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, broken into 20 plus pieces by tidal forces on its last orbit, smashed into the planet Jupiter, releasing the explosive energy of 500 thousand megatons. A team of observers from LLNL used the LLNL Speckle Imaging Camera mounted on the University of California`s Lick Observatory 3 Meter Telescope to capture continuous sequences of planet images during the comet encounter. Post processing with the bispectral phase reconstruction algorithm improves the resolution by removing much of the blurring due to atmospheric turbulence. High resolution images of the planet surface showing the aftermath of the impact are probably the best that were obtained from any ground-based telescope. We have been looking at the regions of the fragment impacts to try to discern any dynamic behavior of the spots left on Jupiter`s cloud tops. Such information can lead to conclusions about the nature of the comet and of Jupiter`s atmosphere. So far, the Hubble Space Telescope has observed expanding waves from the G impact whose mechanism is enigmatic since they appear to be too slow to be sound waves and too fast to be gravity waves, given the present knowledge of Jupiter`s atmosphere. Some of our data on the G and L impact region complements the Hubble observations but, so far, is inconclusive about spot dynamics.

      Someone earlier stated a comment about possible life on Jupiter.

      If there was anything, it would now be comet - kill from the impacts, extinct as the dinosaurs.

    Have the storms been getting bigger or are they staying around a size

    Can i know the wind speed of Jupiter?

    • comment by Polarcuspian on 2022-09-28 20:04 UT

      The ESI- earth similar inventory- may be overlooking the speed of spin as protecting life on earth.

      Jupiter spins so fast it takes 10 hours or so to turn.

      Earth breaks the speed barrier, and has 1/4 leeway with speed after the sound barrier.

      They say Jupiter can be heard in space it spins so fast.

  14. comment by Kelt-9b on 2020-04-05 05:31 UT

    Jupiter is covered with clouds of ammonia crystals mainly it sulfide's the orange, red and yellow coloration of the clouds and storms occurs due the compounds that change color when exposed to U-V light from the sun the substances could be hydrocarbons, sulfur or ammonia. these chromophores mix with the warmer lower deck of clouds leading to the varying color patterns on both the poles and overall the planet. We cannot map each storm exactly as the spacecraft is i a polar orbit and during a perijove it gets a less time span to click a picture instead as the spacecraft is northbound it gets more time observing the southern part so it when it passes by it takes multiple shots which are then sequenced and combined into a movie and during the next perijove it maps that place again informing us of the changes. These coloration can tell us about the true constituents of Jupiter's atmosphere and it's inner chaos.

    Hello, can you add more videos and images of Jupiters storms

    How have you tracked features in a long term version of changes to storms?

    ¿podrían sacar mas secuencias de las tormentas?
