View from Juno approaching the Great Red Spot
The Great Red Spot on the Horizon, seen from the North as Juno was on its way to its close flyover of this massive storm.

The original image strip was divided into the color channels, color balanced and carefully processed with unsharp masking to bring out detail. The overall brightness range was done while trying to imagine the visual appearance, although the reality is probably much lower contrast.
