It’s actually a massive, raging storm in Jupiter’s northern hemisphere. The bright clouds and their shadows range from approximately 4 to 8 miles in both widths and lengths. These appear similar to the small clouds in the other bright regions our Juno spacecraft (@NASAJuno) has detected and are expcted to be updrafts of ammonia ice crystals possibly mixed with water ice. This image was captured on Oct. 24 at 10:32 a.m. EDT by our Juno spacecraft during its ninth close flyby of the gas giant planet. Credit: NASA/JPL-Calthech/SwRI/MSSS/Gerald Eichstädt/Seán Doran
