Mid-infrared images from the Subaru telescope extend Juno spacecraft discoveries

(National Institutes of Natural Sciences) Subaru Telescope images reveal weather in Jupiter's atmosphere in the mid-infrared. High-resolution thermal imaging of Jupiter by the COoled Mid-Infrared Camera and Spectrometer (COMICS) mounted on the Subaru Telescope on Maunakea is providing information that extends and enhances the information that the Juno mission is gathering in its unprecedented mission to probe that planet's interior and deep atmospheric structure together with details of the magnetosphere and its auroral interactions with the planet.
