I love the pictures of the poles. Anyone have any insight as to why it is much more blue there than other regions?


Jupiters atmosphere is 90% Hydrogen, 10% Helium and traces of Ammonia, Ammonia HydroSulfide, and water.
It literally is like a painting. Ammonia gives blue (like Neptune), Sulphur gives Yellow, The hydrosulphide and water provide red and white.

" The colder white bands are known as zones, while the darker red ones are belts. Gases within the zones rise, while within the belts they fall."

Those are awesome photos!

I wonder if/hope they can get time lapse photos in that clarity.

Mind blowing stuff.

When I read articles about this it was all saying these are artist impressions or computer generated from data.

Are these actual photos or clips from video?

This article says they are black and white and other data used to fill in color? Still no color photos in space that deep in space being so dark maybe no?

As usual beautiful images from the probe but more of them! Fantasy-like in composition who would have guessed they'd be that breathtaking besides that.

a reply to: randomthoughts12
These are real, images such as the one in the thread below do have some compositing and enhancement:

Just food for thought here:

What if this gas giant's swirls are a product of something moving through the atmosphere, whether it be from the outside in or the inside out, such as spacecraft coming and going.


It's probably caused by conflicting air currents and pressure, think tornado alley but billions of times bigger.

Totally worth the money the US public have spent for this !

I know we could be spending that money on healthcare or for the homeless or hungry.

but hey its 1 billion less spent on bombs

Since then, dozens of people have processed the black-and-white files into gorgeous, calendar-ready color pictures.


So these are not the actual colours then?

Hydrogen atmosphere. It's blue for the same reason our sky is blue - the scattered sunlight, with blue wavelengths being scattered more strongly than the reds.

They are actual colours, but have been enhanced for better clarity and saturation. Jupiter looks more bland in the unprocessed images.

Fantastic images. However, I think some of them were composed by projecting the images onto a sphere, in 3D graphics software.

This allows you to create videos like this one: www.youtube.com...



Watch full-screen at the best resolution, and don't forget to pick your jaw off the floor afterwards.

Thanks for posting, I hadn't seen these amazing images.
Gotta say though in a psych test my immediate reply would be damned souls trying to escape hell!

Or the frozen state of nothingness some Americans are experiencing.

Mesmerizing photos OP and the video above is stunning.

Yes!
I've seen the temperature in the cold wastelands of some parts of the US and thank my lucky stars I ain't feeling it! Haven't even seen frost where I am in England
