    Default Mysterious 'creature' spotted in Jupiter's clouds stuns NASA



    NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory recently revealed a new, stunning image from its Juno spacecraft, which is currently circling the giant planet. The photo was snapped around 5 p.m. ET on Oct. 29 as the spacecraft made its 16th close flyby around Jupiter, according to a recent news release. At that time, Juno was just 4,400 miles from the floating clouds. There are already lot's of wild speculations about this. What do you see? You can read the article and see the photos here at:

    I hope that all of you enjoy this, and the best of regards.

    It looks like a squid to me, I really enjoyed the image at the bottom of the article though.

    Normal for us to see creatures in chaotic shapes. Not so good to believe it.
