Perspective. Looks massive, and it really is.
 
Jupiter's Clouds | NASA's New Horizons Spacecraft
The New Horizons spacecraft took some stunning images of Jupiter on its way out to Pluto. Famous for its Great Red Spot, Jupiter is also known for its regular, equatorial cloud bands, visible through even modest sized telescopes. The featured image, horizontally compressed, was taken in 2007 near Jupiter's terminator and shows the Jovian giant's wide diversity of cloud patterns. On the far left are clouds closest to Jupiter's South Pole. Here turbulent whirlpools and swirls are seen in a dark region, dubbed a belt, that rings the planet. Even light colored regions, called zones, show tremendous structure, complete with complex wave patterns. The energy that drives these waves surely comes from below.

New Horizons is the fastest space probe ever launched, has successfully complete its main flyby of Pluto in 2015, and is now heading further out and on track to flyby Kuiper belt object 2014 MU69 in 2019. In the near term, many space enthusiasts excitedly await Juno's arrival at Jupiter next Monday, July 4, 2016.

The Center of The Milky Way
Image of the galactic center. For the interferometric GRAVITY observations the star IRS 16C was used as a reference star, the actual target was the star S2. The position of the center, which harbors the (invisible) black hole known as Sgr A*, with 4 million solar masses, is marked by the orange cross.

Super cool!
 
Artist’s impression of the star S2 passing very close to the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way

This artist’s impression shows the orbits of stars around supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way. In 2018 one of these stars, S2, will pass very close to the black hole and present the best opportunity to study the effects of very strong gravity and test the predictions of Einstein’s general relativity in the near future.

The GRAVITY instrument on the ESO Very Large Telescope Interferometer is the most powerful tool for measuring the positions of the S2 star in existence and it was successfully tested on the S2 star in summer 2016. The orbit of S2 is highlighted in red and the position of the central black hole is marked with a red cross.

Meat was bloodier than usual. Could've been cooked a lot more. Almost rare.
