This extraordinary view of Jupiter was captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft on the outbound leg of its 12th close flyby of the gas giant planet. This new perspective of Jupiter from the south makes the Great Red Spot appear as though it is in northern territory. [1920 x 1080] via /r/spaceporn

What a difference 40 years makes. A color image of Charon from data gathered by the New Horizons spacecraft in 2015 shows a range of diverse surface features, significantly transforming our view of a moon discovered in 1978 as a “bump” on Pluto in a set of grainy telescope images.

NASA's Cassini spacecraft made its final close approach to Saturn's moon Mimas on January 30, 2017. At closest approach, Cassini passed 25,620 miles (41,230 kilometers) from Mimas. This mosaic is one of the highest resolution views ever captured of the icy moon. [1700 x 1700] via /r/spaceporn

The spiral galaxy D100 with a 200k light-years long gas tail that is 400k times massive than our Sun & a star-forming region, moved through the hot gas in a coma cluster of galaxies. The red path is due to gravitationaly weak outer gases being stripped away by ram pressure. Credit:NASA,ESA,HUBBLE via /r/spaceporn
