The dark region in the far left is called the South Temperate Belt. Intersecting the belt is a ghost-like feature of slithering white clouds, the largest feature in Jupiter's low latitudes. Citizen scientist Kevin M. Gill processed this image using data from the JunoCam imager. All of JunoCam's raw images are available for the public to peruse and process into image products!
