Very cool. I wondered when I might see that. Thanks.

Some Juno results are being presented at the 231st AAS meeting. Apparently Saturn's north pole is not terribly unique in having a weird geometric structure. Juno has revealed that Jupiter's north pole has an octagonal arrangement of permanent cyclones, and the planet's south pole has a pentagonal arrangement of permanent cyclones. Infrared images attached from the conference.
