The Magnificent Dark Spot

What are those dark spots made of? Where’s Captain Kirk or Doctor Who when you need them?

Seriously, incredible work by Citizen scientist Roman Tkachenko — the quality is top notch! I’m going to follow his work on the new images coming in from Juno very shortly.

The image above was downloaded from the 02 February pass. We will have images very shortly from the 27 March pass which was successful and was be only 4400 km / 2700 miles above the cloud tops of Jupiter.

We’ll be watching JunoCam for the latest.
