Winds of a huge hurricane moving at a speed over 400 kilometers per hour
On the surface of the largest planet in the Solar system – Jupiter raged a gigantic scale storm. The corresponding photo published on the website of NASA, taken by the spacecraft “Juno,” writes the Chronicle.info with reference for Today.
Automatic station “Juno” closer to the planet, and she was able to capture a huge red spot which is a storm.
It is noted that the frame of the storm on Jupiter compiled from three separate images, resulting in improved color reproduction. “Juno” captures an extraordinary event on the planet at a distance of 25 to 49 thousand kilometers.
Note that the great red spot (a hurricane) reaches a width of 15 thousand kilometers. It is observed earthlings for a long time – since 1830. Terrible is the force of the wind within the hurricane – wind moving at a speed over 400 kilometers per hour, and the temperature difference in warm and cold points of the Great red spot more than a few hundred degrees.
Previously, NASA has shown how the North pole of Jupiter. The North pole of this planet consists of a Central cyclone and eight cyclones with a diameter of from 4000 to 4600 miles.
