Clyde foster of the Astronomical society of South Africa on 31 may with a telescope saw Jupiter’s methane-rich convective storm. Two days later the space station “Juno” flew near the object detected and captured by an Amateur astronomer spot.

A similar stain was recorded as “Juno” in February 2018. In General, these phenomena are typical for Jupiter at this latitude. It is expected that at the end of July “Juno” again will fly near the spots Clyde — this will allow to assess the dynamics of the storm.

Cases where Amateur astronomers help to fix events that are not caught in the lenses of the observatories are really frequent. So, in August of 2019, a large asteroid collided with Jupiter — then the flash accidentally took video of Amateur astronomer Ethan Chappel from Texas, writes N+1.

The main purpose of the probe “Juno” — the study of the atmosphere and magnetosphere of Jupiter, as well as gathering information about the internal structure of the gas giant. Start of automatic interplanetary station took place in August 2011. “Juno” got to Jupiter until mid-2016. Originally the device was supposed to work until 2018, but then the mission had been extended until 2021.

Earlier wrote that the European space Agency (ESA) released a video of flight of the Orbiter “Mars Express” on the Queen crater on Mars. The object is a “snowy lake” with a length of 82 km, it is located in the vicinity of the Arctic circle of the planet.

According to scientists, the crater of the Queen arose around 4 billion years ago by a falling body of a smaller size. In those days, Mars was still present water. To date, the impact crater is tightly filled with ice, the thickness of which in the coldest periods of up to two kilometers.
