NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured an eerie “face” on Jupiter during a recent flyby of the giant planet.

The so-called face was formed from swirling clouds and wind directions on the planet, and the spacecraft successfully captured it from an altitude of about 7700 kilometers.

NASA published a photo on October 25, the birthday of the artist Pablo Picasso. The space agency compared the images to cubic paintings by Picasso.

“Jupiter’s vortex clouds appear to form a frowning human face. Half of the image is in the dark on the night side of the planet, almost giving the impression that the face is looking out from behind a door,” NASA said in the description.

Recall that astronomers witnessed how two planets the size of Neptune collided with each other, forming a cloud of gas and dust that resembles a donut.
