NASA has released new images of Jupiter and some of its moons captured by the James Webb Space Telescope. The images of the solar system's largest planet were taken with the telescope's Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam) when mission engineers were calibrating and testing the observatory's scientific instruments and other systems.
The new image clearly shows the famous Great Red Spot, an Earth-sized storm that has been raging on the distant giant for centuries, and even some of the planet's thin rings.
The images also show Europa, the icy moon of the planet. In addition to Europa, the images feature two other satellites of Jupiter: Thebe and Metis.
