(CNN) - NASA's Juno spacecraft sent back amazing photographs of Jupiter last month, which show bands of multi-colored clouds enveloping the planet.

The photos were colorized and released on June 16.

Jupiter is well known for its raging red spot, a powerful storm that is nearly three times the size of Earth. These new clouds, however, are cream-colored and orange.

The Juno spacecraft launched in 2011 on a mission to gain a better understanding of the largest planet in the Milky Way.

It arrived to Jupiter in July 2016.
