Earlier this week we told you that NASA’s Juno spacecraft will be completing a flyby over one of Jupiter’s most famous attractions, the Great Red Spot.

Today the results of that flyby were sent back from the craft on Jupiter to the fine folks at NASA on Earth, with a set of particularly interesting photos that show us that spot in much greater detail.

The reason these photos are so interesting is that we don’t actually know too much about the cyclone and nor have we took such a close look at it before.

Today Juno sent back a set of shots that were snapped of the storm with JunoCam from about 5,000 miles above the Great Red Spot.

Here are some of the best of those images:
