NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has taken a new image of Jupiter, revealing the sign of the largest planet in the solar system, known as the “Great Red Spot” and a dense palette of clouds surrounding it.

According to the “Daily Mail”, the new image was announced as part of the program OPAL, where the picture was taken when the planet was 400 million miles from Earth and off the sun in the sky.

Experts say the visual details provide new and important clues about the planet’s atmosphere.One of the most striking features of the picture is the rich colors of clouds heading towards the Great Red Spot, a storm that rolls clockwise between two bands of clouds.

All of Jupiter colored cloud bands in this image are confined to the north and south by jet streams that remain constant, reaching speeds of up to 400 miles (644 km) per hour.

The lighter tapes rise and have thicker clouds than the darker tapes, and researchers have observed hurricanes with a wide variety of different manifestations around the planet.
