Zooming Into the Great Red Spot of Jupiter

This video is a pan across the surface of Jupiter, featuring a zoom into the planet's trademark Great Red Spot.

This new image was taken on 27 June 2019 by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3, when the planet was 644 million kilometres from Earth. The image highlights the Great Red Spot in a more intense colour palette in the clouds swirling in the planet’s turbulent atmosphere than seen in previous years.
