(CNN) -- The Hubble Space Telescope recently took an amazing photo of one of our neighboring planets.

The portrait gives a detailed look at Jupiter. In it, you can see the vivid colors and intricate details in the swirling clouds of the planet.

The planet's great red spot also stands out. That spot, which is actually a storm, has lasted 150 years that we know of. 

Some of the clouds can be seen moving toward the circular storm.
