Flight over the Great Red Spot

The video allows the viewer to make a virtual flight “back and forth” through the upper atmosphere of Jupiter in the area of ​​the Great Red Spot (the largest atmospheric vortex in the solar system – ed.). Computer animation was created by combining images made by the JunoCam camera installed on the Yunona space probe.

“Flight” begins at an altitude of 3 thousand kilometers above the clouds of the southern hemisphere of the planet. The indicator on the left shows the height during a quick descent; The second sensor shows a sharp rise in temperature when going down. The clouds are painted crimson, as the “flight” passes through the Great Red Spot. Then the ascent begins.
