NASA scientists using Hubble Space Telescope have captured new fascinating 4K Ultra HD imagery of Jupiter and revealed details that have never seen before about this outer planet of the solar system.

The new imagery from Hubble Space Telescope said to be NASA’s planetary photographer, found that Jupiter’s big red spot is shrinking and becoming circular rapidly and this process is continued for last few years.


The great red spot similar to a hurricane, is three times bigger than Earth as Jupiter is the biggest planet of the solar system, but NASA’s newly released portraits confirm it remains more orange than red these days.

Hubble images also reveal the formation of a rare blue wave on Jupiter made up of cyclones and anticyclones that resemble  an Earthly baroclinic wave that can appear in our atmosphere when cyclones form.
