About this image

Scientists have produced new maps of Jupiter using the Wide Field Camera 3 on NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Data for the two maps shown here were taken during Hubble Outer Planet Atmospheres Legacy program observations of Jupiter on Jan. 19, 2015, from 2:00 UT to 12:30 UT (upper panel) and from 15:00 UT to 23:40 UT (bottom panel). The movement of the clouds can be seen when comparing the two maps.
