Juno and the Great Red Spot: First NASA images from fly-by of solar system's biggest storm

Extract from ABC News

The first ever close-up images of Jupiter's gargantuan hurricane, the Great Red Spot, are beginning to trickle through from NASA's Juno spacecraft after it completed its historic fly-by a few days ago.
Travelling at about 50 kilometres per second, Juno flew within 9,000 kilometres of the billowing brick-red cloud tops of the hurricane, which has been raging for at least 200 years.
