Jupiter's iconic crimson storm known as the 'Great Red Spot' can be seen  in a whole new light thanks to a fresh series of images from NASA's  Juno spacecraft.

As part of its swansong of maneuvers set to culminate later this year,  the probe made an incredibly close pass over the storm, which measures  twice the size of the Earth, earlier this week.

From 5,600 miles above the tantalizing tempest, Juno acquired a wealth  of heretofore unavailable data from the storm using seven different  types of instruments.

Among them, as you can see, was a camera which captured some truly  breathtaking views of the storm which has swirled on Jupiter for over a  century.
