Juno has captured it’s first close-up images of Jupiter and they show us a stunning Jovian world riddled with chaotic weather storms. Images show cyclones as big as 870 miles (1,400 km) in diameter swirling over Jupiter’s north and south poles.

Juno went into Jupiter’s orbit in July with a goal of seeing through the cloudy atmosphere and provide insights into how the planet formed. The $1.1bn probe has survived a six-year, 2.8 billion km journey and now orbits around the planet’s north and south poles.
