Jupiter has been captured by Webb's Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam).

The James Webb Space Telescope has captured new images of Jupiter, helping them understand Jupiter’s inner life more precisely, Webb’s observations provide scientists with even more clues about Jupiter.

Jupiter is a gaseous planet, and there are countless activities happening, such as the movement of giant storms and powerful winds, the appearance of auroras at Jupiter’s poles. is accelerated, and when the particles hit the atmosphere near the magnetic poles, glow like gases in a fluorescent light fixture.

Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) is used for this image of Jupiter, which has three special infrared filters, which display the details of the planet. Our eyes are able to see only in visible light, since infrared light is invisible to our eyes, so the light is mapped on the visible spectrum.

Scientists collaborated with citizen scientist Judy Schmidt to translate the Webb data into images, and the image was created by combining several images from Webb, including visible auroras from high altitudes above both the north and south poles of Jupiter are spread.
