These pictures of Jupiter taken by the Juno spacecraft are fucking with my emotions; I remember avidly staring at grainy black and white photos of the planets when I was very little. Absolutely breathtaking #astronomy

@StarStuffSister Oh, yeah, isn't that shit crazy awesome? Even better than the images from Galileo.

Hell, I can remember seeing Pluto only as artists' concepts and grainy splotches on ground-based telescope fotos; then the New Horizons fotos came back and OH JEEZUS CHRIST, a real actual world with mountains and plains and topography, oh look the fuck out...
