Citizen scientist Rick Lundh created this abstract Jovian artwork using data from the JunoCam imager on NASA’s Juno spacecraft.

The original image captures a close-up view of numerous storms in the northern hemisphere of Jupiter. To produce this artwork, Lundh selected a more contrasting part of one of Jupiter’s storms, then cropped the image and applied an oil-painting filter.

NASA’s Juno spacecraft took this image during its tenth close flyby of the gas giant planet on Dec. 16, 2017 at 9:43 a.m. PST (12:43 p.m. EST). At the time, the spacecraft was about 8,292 miles (13,344 kilometers) from the tops of the clouds above the planet, with the images centered at a latitude of 48.9 degrees.
