(Inside Manila) Jupiter, the fifth and largest planet of the Solar System, is often in conjunction with the Moon and other planets as we’ve observed in 2017. Over the years, the most scintillating we’ve seen of Jupiter’s details remain a blur. Until now.


National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) put earthlings, particularly the fans of astronomy, into a collective amusement when it released decidedly beautiful photos of Jupiter, perhaps the “most” beautiful the world have ever seen.


The “mind-bending, color-enhanced view of the planet’s tumultuous atmosphere” was enhanced by citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran. The three white oval storms visible near the top of the image is called “String of Pearls,” and the alternating light and dark bands are gases that rage around hundreds of miles per hour.


As it is in the above photo, all other photos are taken by NASA’s Juno spacecraft in black-and-white raw, uploaded on JunoCam, and made available to the public the color-enhance. That said, here are the other photos of Jupiter released by NASA:

You’re not alone if this reminds you of “Loving Vincent” or Dutch Post-Impressionist painter Van Gogh himself.
