'Gorgeous' new images of Jupiter & Europa shared by NASA

It might not sport the photogenic rings of Saturn, but the striped clouds of Jupiter are gorgeous. NASA and ESA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured a beautiful new image of the solar system's biggest planet.

The image was taken on August 25 and just shared, but it's already giving researchers a fresh look at the weather on the planet. That includes the larger-the-Earth storm that is the Great Red Spot. You can also see a new storm that NASA calls "a cousin" to the Great Red Spot.

Additionally, in the upper left of the image, you can spot the moon Europa, the smallest of Jupiter's four Galilean moons. Recent research has upped the estimate of total moons for Jupiter, putting the number at as many as 600.

The thought earth is part of something so much bigger is mind blowing and bone chilling at the same time. I think of space as an infinite limbo and it kind of freaks me out.

Looks like Jupiter is a bottom, and quite a popular one at that...

Truly stunning. Space is so fascinating yet terrifying at the same time. We're so small in the grand scheme of things.
