Low 3-D Flyover of Jupiter’s North Pole in Infrared
In this animation the viewer is taken low over Jupiter’s north pole to illustrate the 3-D aspects of the region’s central cyclone and the eight cyclones that encircle it.

The movie utilizes imagery derived from data collected by the Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument aboard NASA’s Juno mission during its fourth pass over the massive planet. Infrared cameras are used to sense the temperature of Jupiter’s atmosphere and provide insight into how the powerful cyclones at Jupiter’s poles work. In the animation, the yellow areas are warmer (or deeper into Jupiter’s atmosphere) and the dark areas are colder (or higher up in Jupiter’s atmosphere). In this picture the highest “brightness temperature” is around 260K (about -13°C) and the lowest around 190K (about -83°C). The “brightness temperature” is a measurement of the radiance, at 5 µm, traveling upward from the top of the atmosphere towards Juno, expressed in units of temperature.

I admire the beautiful deception that is NASA…predictive programming at it's finest…well done evil doers…
Depth scale? Any image, illustration without scale is worthless.
Just like I remember it Jupiter is a nice place. good coffee
There is a pack a jerks who dare to put "thumb down" 😮 !!! Obviously, they're incapable to appreciate the prowess ! TERRIFIC images ! Bravo !
