View of Jupiter's north polar region from an altitude of ~12900 km. This image captures a polar jet stream (named N6) and its interaction with a brown cyclonic system. This interaction has created a turbulent region with bright clouds in the cyclone's wake. Several clusters of small convective clusters appear to be the source of the bright clouds.
