Caption: Map of Jupiter, cylindrical projection. Optical image of Jupiter displayed in cylindrical projection. Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. It has a diameter of around 140,000 kilometres, more than ten times that of Earth. It is a gas giant and is mostly hydrogen and helium. Its clouds are coloured by trace chemical elements. The Great Red Spot (GRB) is at lower centre. The GRB is in Jupiter's southern hemisphere, with North at top in this image. This image was obtained from 5-14 June 2016, three weeks prior to JOI (Jupiter Orbit Insertion) for the Juno mission.
