The Juno spacecraft captured this color-enhanced image on April 1, 2018, during its 12th close flyby of Jupiter. When its cameras took this shot, the spacecraft was about 7,659 miles (12,326 km) from the tops of the clouds over the planet’s northern latitude.

Bottom line: Juno spacecraft image of Jupiter’s cloud tops.
