Jovian twilight zone. Gerald Gerald Eichstädt processed this image of the swirling cloud formations around the south pole of Jupiter, looking up toward the equatorial region. NASA's Juno spacecraft took the color-enhanced image during its eleventh close flyby of the gas giant planet on Feb. 7, 2018. At the time, the spacecraft was 120,533 kilometers from the tops of Jupiter's clouds at 84.9 degrees south latitude.

As NASA's Cassini spacecraft soared past Saturn's moon Titan, it recently caught a glimpse of bright sunlight reflecting off hydrocarbon seas. In the past, Cassini had captured, separately, views of the polar seas and the sun glinting off them, but this is the first time both have been seen together in the same view.
