NASA’s Cassini spacecraft: Flying by Jupiter (2000)

Dive deeper into the amazing images captured by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, when it flew by Jupiter in 2000, with the team of scientists and amateur astronomers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center: 

New movies of Jupiter are the first to catch an invisible wave shaking up one of the giant planet’s jet streams, an interaction that also takes place in Earth’s atmosphere and influences the weather. 

I know the co-curator can’t help but take this sort of view for granted, but WOW: watching a jet stream on Jupiter! How amazing is that?!
