The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has always been generous on sharing its majestic discoveries from space ventures.

The agency recently released a trove of new photographs of the mysterious planet Jupiter from NASA’s $1-billion Juno probe.


As part of the ninth set of stunning flyby images taken by the Juno spacecraft on Oct. 24 and sent to Earth on Oct. 31, the cosmic allure of the giant planet was uploaded on NASA’s verified Juno Mission Twitter page.

Built by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, the Juno spacecraft was launched in August 2011 and reached Jupiter’s orbit in July last year, after traveling at more than 130,000 miles per hour.

The mission aimed to aid researchers in learning more about Jupiter’s origins, atmosphere and other mysteries, according to The Business Insider.  Khristian Ibarrola /ra
