    Default Mysterious 'creature' and other outlines spotted in Jupiter's clouds stuns NASA



    Space enthusiasts have spotted what they claim is a mythical "creature" hidden in the swirls of Jupiter's cloud system.
    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. "A Dragon’s Eye? What do you see within the swirling clouds of Jupiter?" the NASA lab asked on Twitter.

    These are very organic images. splendid in beauty.
    Although I know I could not live there I am in love with the feeling these images move in me. Something happens in my throat, words that I cannot speak.
    Deeply stunning!

    Thank you for pointing me here again, Gabby and Marshall.
