Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency features a striking new look at Jupiter captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.

The Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) is the most technologically advanced instrument to take images in the visible spectrum.

The WFC3 shot this photograph on June 27, 2019, when Jupiter was 644 million kilometers away at its closest point to Earth this year.
