Clouds in a Jovian jet stream, called Jet N5, swirl in the center of this color-enhanced image from NASA's Juno spacecraft. A brown oval known as a "brown barge" can be seen in the North North Temperate Belt region in the top-left portion of the image.

New movies of Jupiter are the first to catch an invisible wave shaking up one of the giant planet's jet streams, an interaction that also takes place in Earth's atmosphere and influences the weather.

New climate models have been created to explain the shift in the jet stream that occurs at the gas giants equator about every 4 years.

NASA's Juno orbiter continues to return data from Jupiter that is changing our understanding of how the giant planet works.

After completing 10 passes about 3,500 kilometers above the Jovian clouds, the unmanned probe has found evidence that the famous bands of clouds extend deep into the atmosphere, as well as clues to the nature of the planet's core
