This is our closest look at Jupiter’s iconic “Great Red Spot.” These photographs were taken by NASA’s Juno probe. It flew just 5,600 miles above the Great Red Spot — an enormous storm that’s 1.3 times as wide as Earth. The storm is believed to have lasted for over 350 years.

How it persisted for that long is a mystery. But recent studies suggest the Great Red Spot is shrinking.
