The New Horizons spacecraft recently sent back photos of Jupiter that are more for art than for science. Still, they awe scientists and artists alike. The first one is a photo of one of Jupiter's Galilean moons, Europa, rising above the clouds of Jupiter. The next one is a detailed photo of "Little Red," the spot that now comes second in popularity from the Great Red. It was first photographed by Filipino amateur Christopher Go after it was created from the fusion of smaller spots. The discovery was later confirmed by experts.
