Lots of excitement about finding a gas giant planet orbiting two red dwarf stars. This picture is an artist's impressing of the system OGLE-2007-BLG-349 about 8000 light years away. It's based on gravitational lensing data collected using the Hubble Space Telescope.

If someone suggested that I dash off to an art museum to see this fabulous abstract by a modern master, I'd have no trouble believing it. Just tell me which one!

However it's an image taken by NASA's Juno probe of Jupiter as it soars low over the cloud tops. Juno loops around Jupiter in a flight pattern that brings it close to the planet every 53 days. The orbit protects the probe from the extreme radiation belt that wraps around the gas giant.

Something a bit different about this version of Van Gogh's "Starry Night". JunoCam user Amelia Carolina Sparavigna replaced Van Gogh's swirly sky with patterns from a Juno image of Jupiter's cloud tops.

What on Earth is this?

Nothing on Earth. It's Mars. Still doesn't make sense? Robert Nemiroff (MTU) & Jerry Bonnell (UMCP) explain:
Quote
Deep shadows create dramatic contrasts between light and dark in this high-resolution close-up of the martian surface. Recorded on January 24, 2014 by the HiRISE camera onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, the scene spans about 1.5 kilometers. From 250 kilometers above the Red Planet the camera is looking down at a sand dune field in a southern highlands crater. Captured when the Sun was about 5 degrees above the local horizon, only the dune crests were caught in full sunlight. A long, cold winter is coming to the southern hemisphere and bright ridges of seasonal frost line the martian dunes.

This exquisite picture is the Lagoon Nebula. It's the Hubble Space Telescope's 28th Birthday Picture. It's only a portion of the nebula about four light-years across. The whole thing is 55 light years across and located some 4000 light years away in the constellation Sagittarius.
