The name of this thread is a bit of a giveaway, so no point asking which artist painted this picture. However out of context it might well have people scratching their heads trying to work out who the artist might be. But of course it's data from Juno, in this case a closeup of Maximus Spatium processed by Shawn Handran.

Juno captured this view of a storm on Jupiter during the 7th perijove flyby five days ago. Perijove means close in to Jupiter, and Juno was at about 11,500 km (over 7000 miles) away. That's pretty close - that distance would take you more than a quarter of the way around the Earth at the equator.

It's Juno taking us on a flyby a few thousand kilometers over Jupiter, approaching the Great Red Spot. When you go to the URL, be sure to click on the image to get the full effect. Amazing.

Citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran used data from the JunoCam imager on NASA’s Juno spacecraft to produce this unusual image of Jupiter. Juno was carrying out its seventh close flyby of Jupiter - 16,535 km (10,274 miles) above the cloudtops.
Quote:
The tumultuous Great Red Spot is fading from Juno's view while the dynamic bands of the southern region of Jupiter come into focus. North is to the left of the image, and south is on the right.

It's the North North Temperate Zone Little Red Spot. It's a big name for a little spot, but in fact even this little spot is almost the size of the Earth. The storm system is about about 8000 km in diameter. Juno record this on July 11 when it was within 3500 km of Jupiter's atmosphere.

At its closest approach to Jupiter during each flyby, Juno briefly becomes the fastest human-made object in the solar system, reaching speeds of around 130,000 miles per hour.

The spacecraft has been taking pictures of Jupiter from closer than any other craft has done.

Here is a picture that includes storms large enough to pretty well swallow planet Earth .
