Nasa’s spacecraft Juno soared close to the crimson cloud tops of Jupiter’s most extraordinary feature – the Great Red Spot – to capture some incredible photos.
The US space agency’s probe passed 5,600 miles (9,000 km) above the massive storm system to take some of the best photos yet.
The close fly-by was completed during Juno’s sixth scientific orbit of the solar system’s biggest planet.
Juno swooped close to Jupiter and passed directly above the Great Red Spot on July 10.
On July 5 at 3.30am UK time, Juno logged exactly one year in Jupiter orbit, having travelled a total of 71 million miles (114.5 million km) around the gas giant.
