Buck was born in Hillsboro, West Virginia, but moved to China with her parents when she was only five months old.
The image provides a detailed look at a unique cluster of three white oval-shaped storms that lie southwest below and to the left of Jupiter's Great Red Spot. The appearance of the clouds, in this image, is considerably different from their appearance only seven months earlier.
These features are moving closer together as the Great Red Spot is carried westward by the prevailing winds while the white ovals are swept eastward. The outer two of the white storms formed in the late s.
In the centers of these cloud systems the air is rising, carrying fresh ammonia gas upward.
The intervening white storm center, the ropy structure to the left of the ovals, and the small brown spot have formed in low pressure cells.
The white clouds sit above locations where gas is descending to lower, warmer regions. Cassini Jupiter Portrait This true color mosaic of Jupiter was constructed from images taken by the Cassini spacecraft on December 29,during its closest approach to the giant planet at a distance of approximately 10 million kilometers 6.
It is the most detailed global color portrait of Jupiter ever produced; the smallest visible features are approximately 60 kilometers 37 miles across. The mosaic is composed of 27 images: Although Cassini's camera can see more colors than humans can, Jupiter's colors in this new view look very close to the way the human eye would see them.
Everything visible on the planet is a cloud. The parallel reddish-brown and white bands, the white ovals, and the large Great Red Spot persist over many years despite the intense turbulence visible in the atmosphere. The most energetic features are the small, bright clouds to the left of the Great Red Spot and in similar locations in the northern half of the planet.
These clouds grow and disappear over a few days and generate lightning. Streaks form as clouds are sheared apart by Jupiter's intense jet streams that run parallel to the colored bands. The prominent dark band in the northern half of the planet is the location of Jupiter's fastest jet stream, with eastward winds of kilometers miles per hour.
Jupiter's diameter is eleven times that of Earth, so the smallest storms on this mosaic are comparable in size to the largest hurricanes on Earth. Unlike Earth, where only water condenses to form clouds, Jupiter's clouds are made of ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, and water.
The updrafts and downdrafts bring different mixtures of these substances up from below, leading to clouds at different heights. The brown and orange colors may be due to trace chemicals dredged up from deeper levels of the atmosphere, or they may be byproducts of chemical reactions driven by ultraviolet light from the Sun.
Bluish areas, such as the small features just north and south of the equator, are areas of reduced cloud cover, where one can see deeper. The outer layer is primarily composed of molecular hydrogen.
At greater depths the hydrogen starts resembling a liquid. At this state hydrogen changes into a phase of liquid metallic hydrogen. In this state, the hydrogen atoms break down yeilding ionized protons and electrons similar to the Sun's interior. Below this is a layer dominated by ice where "ice" denotes a soupy liquid mixture of water, methane, and ammonia under high temperatures and pressures.
Finally at the center is a rocky or rocky-ice core of up to 10 Earth masses. It is made from Near Infrared and Violet images, with an artificial green image produced from the other two.Please report any typos or formatting problems you see with this text..
