NASA's Juno probe continues to whip around Jupiter. Incredible new color photos of the giant planet continue to be beamed back to Earth.
But images that capture the planet's stormy poles in infrared light are helping to crack the mysteries of Jupiter's inner workings. The poles are invisible to human eyes.
On Wednesday, NASA released a new 3D animation that was made using infrared photos of Jupiter's poles. Juno is documenting those mysterious regions of the enormous planet for the first time in history.
Visible-light images taken by the probe's JunoCam show a bizarrely symmetric pattern of anticyclonic or backward-spinning storms.
