There was actually a proposal for a low-cost camera that fit within the data allocation for the Galileo probe, but it wasn't selected.


given how limited the data return from the Galileo orbiter eventually was, we can be thankful for that!

It seems that for the foreseeable future, the only views from any of the gas giant atmospheres will remain those gorgeous artist's concepts (Don Dixon, Adolf Schaller, etc.)

Today, four Nature papers about new findings by the Juno mission have been released online, but only the abstracts are free:
Clusters of cyclones encircling Jupiterís poles
A suppression of differential rotation in Jupiterís deep interior
Jupiterís atmospheric jet streams extend thousands of kilometres deep
Measurement of Jupiterís asymmetric gravity field

This allows to discuss the circumpolar cyclones on the missionjuno Think Tank site.

Additionally, John Rogers has released a version of the CPC observations on the BAA website, together with several animations we compiled over a little more than a year.

A very interesting video. I was particularly impressed by the SRU images; Jupiter's nightside in Ioshine!

I wonder when models will be able to simulate the patterns and the colors of the clouds. In the (pre-Juno) paper below, figure 5 shows the patterns, though doesn't include the microphysics/chemistry to show things like cloud opacity and colors.

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/25...ian_atmospheres (see figure 5a).
