Juno and Jupiter 2

Who is the best photographer in the universe? Juno, of course, helped by the magnificent  planetscape it is visiting, and some help from digital enhancement by human hands. The Juno spacecraft of NASA, on its fifth flyby by Jupiter, has sent back stunning pictures on Monday.  Here are two pictures from the flyby

followed by a composite image, composed over four months;

and, not the usual red spot, but a local storm.

Just for comparison, an old one from Voyager 1, also a composite picture ( a similar picture by New Horizons was posted on this blog earlier).

Finally, just for the heck of it, do you think Van Gogh did better?
