This picture of the Jupiter's South Pole is a mosaic of many images acquired by the Jovian InfraRed Auroral Mapper at wavelengths around 5 µm during perijove pass #4. The images have been taken in different times while Juno was leaving the planet after the closest approach. What you see here is the heat (measured as radiance) coming out from the planet through the clouds: yellow indicates the presence of thinner clouds and dark red the thicker ones. | NASA/SWRI/JPL/ASI/INAF/IAPS
