Jupiter’s North and South Poles: First Photos and “Like Nothing We Have Seen Before” (via NASA)

Juno, NASA’s spacecraft that left Cape Canaveral, Florida in August 2011 reached Jupiter July 2016 and is sending back the first photos of the gas giant’s North and South Poles.  Photos and more information available in this update:  "'Jupiter is talking to us in a way only gas-giant worlds can,” said Bill Kurth, co-investigator for the Waves instrument from the University of Iowa, Iowa City. “Waves detected the signature emissions of the energetic particles that generate the massive auroras which encircle Jupiter’s north pole. These emissions are the strongest in the solar system. Now we are going to try to figure out where the electrons come from that are generating them.'"  

Strongest in our solar system?  Whoa.  Looking forward to learning more.
