Jupiter's Turbulent Atmosphere
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. Space Telescope Science Institute

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.
