Praise Cthulhu! NASA's Juno spacecraft has just delivered the most incredible images of Jupiter's Great Red Spot -- and that's a really high bar to clear. The spacecraft has spent the last year beaming back some of the most mind-blowing images of the gas giant. But today's batch marks a historic moment for the orbiter, which got closer to the Great Red Spot than ever before on Monday, July 10th. Although all Juno pics are ethereally beautiful, these Great Red Spot snaps just absurd. Seriously, how dare you go and be this beautiful, Jupiter.

Jupiter is the biggest, angriest cup of coffee in the solar system. In snapshots from NASA's Juno spacecraft, Jupiter's swirling clouds look divinely creamy -- but the planet is anything but placid. Jovian storms, chaotic and spectacular as they are, offer a stark reminder of how awesome and terrifying the universe really is. Goddamn are they both.
