This frame from a video shows Jupiter as revealed by a powerful telescope sensitive to the giant planet's tropospheric temperatures and cloud thickness. It combines observations made on Jan. 14, 2017, using the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii.

This false-color image of Jupiter was taken on May 18, 2017, with the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii. The Great Red Spot appears at the lower center of the planet as a cold region with a thick cloud layer.

Subaru Telescope's Prime Focus Camera Suprime-Cam Takes Its Final Data

This false-color image comes from the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii, taken using a mid-infrared filter on May 18. (That's a longer wavelength than that used for the above Gemini photo, taken the same night.) The Great Red Spot appears as a cold region with a thick layer of clouds.

This view of Jupiter in the mid-infrared comes from observations made on Jan. 14 by the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii, penetrating to the planet's troposphere. The telescope's Cooled Mid-Infrared Camera and Spectrometer (COMICS) captured the images.

The Andromeda Galaxy (M31) ~ A massive spiral 2.5 million light-years away, over twice the diameter of our own Milky Way, it's the largest nearby galaxy. Andromeda's population of bright young blue stars lie along its sweeping spiral arms. (Spitzer Space Telescope)

Subaru Telescope Captures the Fine Details of Comet Lovejoy’s Tail by JASON MAJOR on DECEMBER 6, 2013 In the early hours of Dec. 3, astronomers using the 8.2-meter Subaru Telescope atop Mauna Kea in Hawaii captured this amazing image of Lovejoy, revealing the intricate flows of ion streamers in its tail.
