A Whole New Jupiter: First Science Results from NASA’s Juno Mission

Early science results from NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter portray the largest planet in our solar system as a complex, gigantic, turbulent world, with Earth-sized polar cyclones, plunging storm systems that travel deep into the heart of the gas giant.

Lightning storms on are frequent near the planet's poles according new findings by the NASA spacecraft orbiting currently the giant planet. See this JunoCam image with artistic embellishments.
