This composite image of photographs made by Nasa's Cassini spacecraft on December 29, 2000 shows the planet Jupiter. The photographs taken during the Cassini's closest approach to the gas giant at a distance of approximately 10 million kilometers (6.2 million miles). The Great Red Spot, a fierce storm larger than Earth, has been observed for centuries. But in recent years, it has been mysteriously shrinking

The giant dark spot is a gap in the sun's corona - its scorching hot atmosphere where the magnetic field reaches out into space rather than looping back down onto the surface. Here, the Sun is seen in extreme ultraviolet light. This highlights the atmosphere ¿the Sun¿s corona. Hot, active regions are bright. The dark coronal hole is an area where very little radiation is being emitted

Juno was launched into space by an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on August 5, 2011. The mission is part of Nasa's New Frontiers programme of robotic space missions which last year saw the New Horizons probe obtain close up views of dwarf planet Pluto
