PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - A NASA spacecraft has sent back the first pictures since arriving at Jupiter.

An image released Tuesday shows Jupiter surrounded by three of its four largest moons. The picture was taken on Saturday when the Juno spacecraft was circling 3 million miles away. Even at that distance, Jupiter's Great Red Spot - a centuries-old atmospheric storm - was visible.

Juno entered orbit around Jupiter last week after a five-year journey. It's on a 20-month mission to map the giant planet's poles, atmosphere and interior.

That's where a new partnership between the US Department of Agriculture and NASA comes in. The agencies are expanding the use of satellite technology to gather data on soil moisture and create space-borne maps showing drought effects in specific regions.
