An infrared view of Jupiter taken by the Juno Spacecraft

This animation is made of images taken August 27 by the Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument aboard the Juno Spaceraft. It is showing Jupiter's glow in infrared light.

“JIRAM is getting under Jupiter’s skin, giving us our first infrared close-ups of the planet,” said Alberto Adriani, JIRAM co-investigator from Istituto di Astrofisica e Planetologia Spaziali, Rome.

If he denies responsibility, he is not in control which begs the question, What is his role in FIFA and why is he paid millions??
Fifa president Sepp Blatter says he cannot be held responsible for the current corruption scandal but vows to work to earn back trust.
