WOW… George Clooney is a great friend! He gave each of his 14 best friends a bag full of cash… a million dollars in twenties!

NASA’s Juno spacecraft is orbiting Jupiter, so they took the data coming back from the craft to create an incredible animation that shows us what it might look like to dive inside Jupiter’s famous “Great Red Spot”… a storm that is 50 to 100 times deeper than any of our oceans and could swallow the earth whole. Incredible.

Have a fantastic Wednesday!  Jennifer
