https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=25&v=kWH6i37JDaU A new NASA animation shows the 3-D aspects of Jupiter’s north pole and the cyclones swirling there. The video released on May 8 uses imagery taken from date collected by the  Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) aboard the Juno mission during its fourth pass over the planet. The infrared cameras are used to sense the temperature of the planet’s atmosphere and to give insight into how the cyclones at the poles work. The yellow areas are warmer, or deeper in the atmosphere, while dark areas are colder, or higher in the atmosphere. The highest “brightness temperature” is around -13 degrees Celsius and the lowest is -83 degrees Celsius.   Story via Storyful
