While posting the picture, NASA wrote, "Storms on Jupiter – the fifth planet from the Sun – churn and swirl in this image captured by our #JunoMission. With no solid surface on the planet, storms can last for years, decades, or even centuries with winds exceeding 400 mph (643 kph)".

They further added, “Juno imaged this storm within Jupiter's iconic banded jet streams as it flew 8,000 miles (13,000 km) above the gas giant's clouds. These turbulent jet streams are comprised of ammonia and water. They crisscross the planet's atmosphere, which is mostly hydrogen and helium.” (Also Read: NASA says 280-foot asteroid set to approach Earth! Know how close it will get)
