NASA's Juno Spacecraft spotted a giant black spot on Jupiter that stretched 2,200 miles across the surface of the gas planet.
On its NASA website, there is a clear explanation for the somewhat sinister-looking space. Mark is simply the shadow of the moon of Jupiter, Io.
"Such events often happen on Jupiter because it is a large planet with many moons," NASA explained. "In addition, unlike most other planets in our solar system, the Jupiter axis is not very tilted relative to its orbit, so the sun never deviates from the equatorial plane of Jupiter (+/- 3 degrees). This means that Jupiter's moons regularly throw their shadows on the planet throughout the year. "
THE MASSIVE FIBER ON JUPITER'S MUHAN CAN BE KNOWN UNKNOWN
Jupiter has 53 named moons and 26 that still have official names, according to space.
"Juno's proximity to Jupiter provides stunning fish-eye views, showing small fractions near the equator of the planet, "NASA adds in its message." A shadow of 3600 kilometers in width, about the same width as Io, but looking much larger than Jupiter. "

NASA noted that an enhanced color image of a giant black spot was created by citizen scientist Kevin M. Gill using data from a JunoCam Juno VCR. The image was captured on September 11, 2019, when Juno was located about 4,885 miles above the tops of Jupiter's cloud.
Jupiter Io Moon is described by NASA as the most volcanically active body in the solar system.
NASA In a recent research project, scientists reported that Loki Patera, a massive volcano on Io, could immediately explode.
