Images of Jupiter’s ‘Great Red Spot’ taken from Space

We’re getting a better look at the planet Jupiter.

Images were taken from NASA’s Juno mission that display Jupiter’s "great red spot" storm.

The storm is actually made up of clouds 10,000 miles wide, creating a storm larger than Earth.

That storm may be over 350 years old, and has appeared to be shrinking in recent years.

Juno first reached Jupiter last year, and has traveled about 71 million miles around the planet.
