Juno interplanetary station took a stunning picture of the clouds of Jupiter during the 49th close flyby of the planet.

The station passed near the cloud tops of the gas giant -- at a distance of about 8200 km -- and the device's JunoCam device photographed haze streaks appearing above the cyclones in the Jet N7 region.
