The Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE) will launch in 2022 on a seven-year journey to the Jupiter system. Before its launch, the mission's navigation camera (NavCam) has given the first glimpse of its destination while still on Earth.
NASA has shared new pictures of Jupiter, which were taken by the Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 when the planet was 400 million miles from Earth on June 27, 2019. Among the most striking features revealed was more intense and rich colours of cloud bands.
The biggest planet in the solar system Jupiter was possibly hit by an asteroid the size of the Earth and the impact was captured by astronomer Ethan Chappel by his Celestron 8 telescope, who put out pictures of the event on Twitter.
