Scientists using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have produced new maps of Jupiter – the first in a series of annual portraits of the solar system’s outer planets.

Collecting these yearly images – essentially the planetary version of annual school picture days for children – will help current and future scientists see how these giant worlds change over time. The observations are designed to capture a broad range of features, including winds, clouds, storms and atmospheric chemistry.

Already, these new images have revealed new features of the Jovian giant never before seen.

Please join +Tony Darnell and Dr.+Bonnie Meinke as they discuss these exciting new images with the team of astronomers who made them.
