NASA’s Juno mission captured a stunning picture of the tumultuous northern region of Jupiter as the spacecraft approached the planet earlier this year.
The space agency said that some notable elements in the image are the thin bands that pass through the center of the image from bottom to top. Juno has been noticing these streaks since the first approach to Jupiter in 2016.

These traces are, in fact, layers of fog particles floating above the clouds, according to NASA, and scientists do not yet know exactly what they are made of or how they form, he writes. Fox News.
“Two jets are in the region where these thin streaks usually occur, and some researchers believe those jets would influence the formation of fog,” NASA said.
The image was taken on February 17, when the spacecraft is more than 25,000 kilometers from the cloud cover of Jupiter, NASA also said.
