The camera system carried by the Juno science probe orbiting Jupiter has captured images that any painter could appreciate. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, that manages the Juno science probe, allows individuals to imagine Jupiter from artistic perspectives using JunoCam images. One interpretation of Jupiter's Great Red Spot was crafted in a style that pays tribute to famous French painter Claude Monet. The original image was captured at 10,274 miles above the tops of Jupiter's swirling clouds this past July.

If you'd like to try your own artistic talent on a Juno image, the raw photographic data is available for download here. Who said the arts & sciences don't go well together?
