            Citizen-scientist David Englund's Avant-garde Jovian Artwork (credit: JPL and the JunoCam imager)

The cameras carried by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Juno spacecraft in orbit around Jupiter has captured images that an abstract painter would appreciate. JPL, that manages the probe, allows individuals to imagine Jupiter from an artistic perspective using raw JunoCam images. One interpretation of the famous Great Red Spot appears to pay a tribute to the famous impressionist painter, Claude Monet. The raw image was captured at ~10,274 miles above Jupiter's swirling clouds. If you'd like to try your own talent on a Juno image, the raw data is available for download here.

Who said the arts & sciences don't go well together?
