La sonda Juno retrata a Júpiter como jamás lo habíamos visto

This enhanced-color image of Jupiters south pole and its swirling atmosphere was created by citizen scientist Roman Tkachenko using data from the JunoCam imager on NASAs Juno spacecraft

When the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft flew by Saturn in 1980 and 1981, they were able to pay only fleeting attention to Titan, the second largest moon in the solar system (larger even than the planet Mercury) and the only solar system moon with an appreciable atmosphere. These images are from subsequent Titan flybys in 2005 and 2006. - Image credit: NASA / JPL / University of Arizona

Pictures of Earth (links to article in Norwegian)

This magnificent image is a portrait of the Earth taken in one single shot. At 121 megapixels, it is the highest resolution image of the planet ever and was taken by the geostationary Russian weather satellite the Electro-L.

Jupiter is stranger than we knew. NASA's Juno spacecraft has now completed its sixth swoop past Jupiter as it moves around its highly ellipticalorbit. Pictured, Jupiter is seen from below where, surprisingly, the horizontal bands that cover most of the planet disappear into swirls and complex patterns. A line of white oval clouds is visible nearer to the equator. Recent results from Juno show that Jupiter's weather phenomena can extend deep below its cloud tops...

Scientists have found that, on average, Mercury spins on its axis 9 seconds faster than had previously been anticipated.

callisto, moon of jupiter

Jupiter's moon Callisto is the most heavily cratered object in the solar system. It is thought to be a long dead world, with hardly any geologic activity on its surface.

Callisto - one of Jupiter's moons and one of my very favorite things in space. It's so beautiful :3

Callisto - Fourth moon of Jupiter after Io - Europa - Ganymede. Formed of rock and ices Third largest moon in our solar system after Titan (Saturn) and Ganymede (Jupiter) respectively. Jupiter's Io being fourth and our Luna fifth.
