“…within the clouds appear numerous illusions,

This photo of clouds within a mysterious jet stream region on Jupiter was taken in February 2019 by NASA’s Juno Space Probe. Photo courtesy and © of NASA, JPL-Caltech, SwRI, MSSS and Kevin M. Gill. (I seldom use other people’s photos, but I couldn’t resist ‘borrowing’ this one.)
