Jupiter's Turbulent Atmosphere
Hubble Space Telescope image of large scale turbulence, small storms, and the Great Red Spot. The deconvolved image was obtained on September 20, 2012 using the WFC3.

The standard data pipeline processing was applied to the image, including bias subtraction, dark frame subtraction, flat-fielding, cosmic ray rejection, and drizzle processing. I used the total variation deconvolution technique to enhance atmospheric features.

This image is in the public domain.

Original image data dated on or about September 20, 2012
