Comprehensive coverage

Jupiter (Webb NIRCam image): This image of Jupiter from NASA's James Webb Space Telescope NIRCam (Near Infrared Camera) shows spectacular detail of the impressive planet in infrared light. In this picture, brightness indicates high altitude. The many white "dots" and "marks" are most likely very high altitude cloud edges of dense convection. The auroras, shown in red in this image, extend to higher altitudes over both the north and south poles of the planet. In contrast, dark bands north of the equator do not cover clouds.
