The Hubble Space Telescope is really, really good at spotting distant objects in space, but it's just as well-suited for catching a snapshot of planets that are a lot closer, like our very own Jupiter.

The photo, which NASA has chosen to highlight in a new post, shows the gas giant in all its glory. We get to see the player's intricate cloud layers, raging storms, and of course the iconic Great Red Spot.
