Caption: Animated Juno spacecraft image of storms in Jupiter's south pole. Cyclones (oval) up to 1000 kilometres across can be seen in the planet's atmosphere. 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. Juno arrived at Jupiter in July 2016. Its mission is to orbit Jupiter over the following year, gathering information about the planet's atmosphere, magnetic field and gravitational field. Image taken by JunoCam at a distance of 52,000 kilometres during three different orbits in 2017.
