Using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, scientists have produced new maps of Jupiter. The data in the Jupiter map shown here was taken during the Hubble Outer Planet Atmospheres Legacy (OPAL) programme. This map has been projected onto a rotating globe, which allows us to see the whole of the planetary surface.
