HOUSTON — NASA's Juno mission just captured a dramatic look at Jupiter's North Pole — and that's just the beginning!

The Juno spacecraft recently carried out a fly-by and zoomed over Jupiter about 2,600 miles above the giant planet's swirling clouds.

NASA reports there are more fly-by's to come.

The Hubble Telescope may have that beat since NASA said these Hubble images of a dwarf galaxy are definitely far, far away. Like 15 million light years from Earth!

It's also a galaxy with an irregular shape, maybe from feasting on planets like ours?

Who knows?
