These images seem to be of massive stormy cyclonic movement of wind that has amassed on the gigantic-gas planet.
In addition, these persistent cyclones on the north pole of gas-planet are surrounded by many small cyclones that are constantly covering the surface. As per the observations that have been made by NASA’s Juno mission the size of these massive stormy formations varies from 2,500 miles to 2,900 miles. Such patterns are so giant that they may easily swallow the whole Earth in them.
Juno, is an important space instrument of the U.S based space agency which provides crucial data and inputs for NASA’s Eyes on the solar system. NASA Eye is a web-based programme which enables its users to go onto a virtual journey on a NASA spacecraft.
According to information cited on NASA’s website, the images of cyclones is a false rendition in which swirls of striking colours are depicted. Juno’s Jovian InfraRed Auroral Mapper instrument did capture such images in the north pole. Along with that, it has captured similar tumultuous storms in the south pole of the planet as well.

Jupiter’s roses: A cosmic bouquet just for you.⁣ ⁣ Not actual roses, these are in fact cyclones on Jupiter’s north pole. These swirls of striking colors in this extreme false color are a rendering of an image from our Juno mission. The huge, persistent cyclone found at Jupiter’s north pole is visible at the center of the image, encircled by smaller cyclones that range in size from 2,500 to 2,900 miles (4,000 to 4,600 kilometers). Together, this pattern of storms covers an area that would dwarf the Earth.⁣ ⁣ Citizen scientist Gerald Eichstädt made this composite image using data obtained by the JunoCam instrument during four of the Juno spacecraft’s close passes by Jupiter, which took place between Feb. 17, 2020, and July 25, 2020. The greatly exaggerated color is partially a result of combining many individual images to create this view.⁣ ⁣ Image data: NASA/JPL-Caltech/SwRI/MSSS⁣ Image processing by Gerald Eichstädt⁣ ⁣ #NASA #Citizenscientist #Jupiter #JunoCam #Roses #Space #Cyclones⁣

These eye-catching colourful showcase of stormy activities on Jupiter was created by Citizen Scientist Gerald Eichstadt who used multiple real-time images of the planet provided by JunoCam instrument when it hurtled past the gas-giant for four times between February and July this year. Eventually, he did combine multiple images to produce such a rendition.

As a consequence of it, these photos will be quite beneficial in further conducting the research regarding the planet. Besides that, it will also help the researchers and astronomers to understand about the stormy and cyclonic environment of Jupiter.

Last week, NASA released images of similar observation on Jupiter where it revealed about a gigantic storm and the Great Red circle along with Red Spot Jr. Those images were captured by Hubble telescope and subsequently, their ultra-violet versions were produced.
