NASA’s Juno Probe Gets Up Close With Jupiter’s Famed Red Spot

NASA captured photos of Jupiter's Great Red Spot from its Juno Spacecraft, which on Monday, July 10, 2017, got closer to the planet than any probe ever had before: a mere 2,200 miles above the clouds. The spot is a raging hurricane more than 2.5 times larger than Earth.
