Three images of Jupiter from the 8-m Frederick C. Gillett Gemini North telescope at the Gemini Observatory and the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope show the gas giant at three different types of light (infrared, visible, and ultraviolet) and reveal a multitude of atmospheric features such as the Great Red Spot, superstorms, and cyclones stretching across the planet’s disk.

This visible-light image of Jupiter was created from data captured on January 11, 2017 using Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3.

Near the top, a long brown feature called a ‘brown barge’ extends 72,000 km (nearly 45,000 miles) in the east-west direction.

The Great Red Spot stands out prominently in the lower left, while the smaller feature nicknamed Red Spot Jr. (known to Jovian scientists as Oval BA) appears to its lower right.

This infrared view of Jupiter was created from data captured on January 11, 2017 with the Near-InfraRed Imager on the Gemini North telescope.

In the image warmer areas appear bright, including four large hot spots that appear in a row just north of the equator.

South of the equator, the oval-shaped and cloud-covered Great Red Spot appears dark

This ultraviolet image of Jupiter was created from data captured on January 11, 2017 using Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3.

The Great Red Spot and Red Spot Jr. absorb ultraviolet radiation from the Sun and therefore appear dark in this view.

Stunning new images of Jupiter from Gemini North and the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope showcase the planet at infrared, visible, and ultraviolet wavelengths of light.

These views reveal details in atmospheric features such as the Great Red Spot, superstorms, and gargantuan cyclones stretching across the planet’s disk.
