The Hubble Space Telescope has recently captured a new photo of Jupiter, showing its trademark Great Red Spot. NASA has shared the image which shows the gas giant in a more intense color palette and in all its glory, and it could be a step towards a better understanding of Jupiter, but also other planets.

New Jupiter photos from NASA look like abstract paintings
NASA has recently published new photos of Jupiter taken by Juno spacecraft over the past year. Just like previous times, the photos will leave you in awe. The latest images of the planet look like abstract watercolor paintings, or “ink in water” art, and the amount of detail in them is striking.
The latest photos of Jupiter via Juno are amazing
Thanks to NASA’s public media library, we’re able to see, download and edit the most amazing photos from space. And the latest photos of Jupiter by Juno spacecraft are groundbreaking and incredible.
Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, the storm bigger the Earth, is now captured in the closest and the clearest photos ever. Juno captured them 5,600 miles above the clouds, and NASA posted them in their gallery for the public to download and process. The images show an incredible amount of details, helping the scientists understand the storm better, and making the rest of us gasp in awe.
Jupiter’s animated photos from Juno Spacecraft are out of this world
As you probably already know, NASA makes their photo library publicly available. Thanks to this, from time to time there are devoted artists and space geeks who turn the images from NASA into something new and beautiful. This time, photographer Sean Doran took still photos of Jupiter and turned them into a mesmerizing animation.
The photos taken by Juno spacecraft are awe-inspiring on their own, but the video adds a totally new dimension. Have you ever tried to imagine yourself orbiting around Jupiter? This video makes you feel like you do, and it’s simply wonderful.
NASA’s $1bn Juno probe just sent back the most amazing images of Jupiter so far
When we hear about “probes” flying around space, we probably think of something fairly small. We’ve all heard them on sci-fi TV shows. “Sent out a probe”, and off flies a little drone-like object. Well, not NASA’s Juno probe. This thing is as big as a basketball court. Launched in 2011, the probe took five years to reach and then settle into orbit around Jupiter, 415 million miles away.
Juno orbits in an extremely wide arc, resulting in a brief fly-by of the gas giant every couple of months. The original plan was for this to happen every two weeks, but some sticky valves put that idea to rest. Juno completed its fifth pass on March 27th, creating and streaming images back to Earth. And the processed full colour results are amazing.
These cheap Soviet lenses are as out of this world as their “Jupiter” name would imply
Jupiter was a class of lens made by manufacturers of the former Soviet Union. There were quite a few different lenses in the Jupiter lineup, and in this set of videos from Mathieu Stern, we’re going to learn about four of them.
A lot of people tend to ignore older lenses, but I picked up a Jupiter-9 85mm f/2 lens last year, and it rapidly became one of my favourite portrait lenses, and it’s fantastic for video. After seeing these videos, I might have to add a couple more to my list.
Lomography unveils the Jupiter 3+ ‘Art’ Lens, an update on a Soviet classic
Regardless of your thoughts on Lomography and their analogue antics, it’s hard to deny their ongoing success with bringing long-lost lenses back from the grave. Today, they continue that trend by officially announcing their latest ‘Art’ lens, a 50mm f/1.5 lens called the Jupiter 3+ Art.[Read More…]
This robot is filming the ocean under a Florida-sized glacier in Antarctica
Thwaites Glacier is a massive glacier about the size of Florida in the West Antarctic. It’s been nicknamed the Doomsday Glacier because it’s disintegrating at an alarming rate and is expected to drive up sea levels by more than half a metre if it disappears completely. That’s not expected to happen in our lifetimes, and parts of the glacier are melting at a slower rate than computer models had predicted.
It’s one of the fastest-changing ice-ocean systems in Antarctica, and scientists have been studying what’s going on using an underwater robot called Icefin. Icefin is a cylindrical underwater drone with an array of sensors, including cameras, to document what’s happening beneath the ice shelf. Although melting below the ice where it meets the ocean is slower than expected, melting in cracks and crevasses is happening more quickly.
Here are the 3 Easiest Astrophotography Targets to get you started
In this post, I will describe how you can capture three of the easiest and most rewarding deep-sky astrophotography targets in the night sky. Unlike some of the more advanced projects I take on, you can capture these objects using a basic, affordable astrophotography kit in your backyard.
I’ll walk you through the process of finding and capturing the objects and the astrophotography equipment I recommend. In general, astrophotography can be difficult, but these targets are nearly foolproof, and I’ll explain why.
Top ten astrophotography articles for 2022
Other than AI, 2022 was a big year for astrophotography, considering that James Webb Space Telescope reached its destination and sent back its first photos. Of course, there have been many other memorable moments and photos, and in this article we’ll share our top ten with you. Okay, and a few honorable mentions, because we just love astrophotography!
