"My latest Jupiter flyby is complete!" said a post on the @NASAJuno Twitter account.
"All science instruments and JunoCam were operating to collect data."
The unmanned spacecraft came closer than any before it to the iconic feature on the solar system's largest planet, the gas giant Jupiter.
Experts say the Great Red Spot is a massive storm -- some 10,000 miles (16,000 kilometers) wide -- that has been churning for centuries, but little is known about the forces driving it.
It has been monitored since 1830 and has possibly existed for more than 350 years.
The storm is believed to have been shrinking in recent years.
"Now we are finally going to see what this storm looks like up close and personal."
The flyover took place July 10 at 9:55 pm (July 11 at 0155 GMT), as the spacecraft passed about 5,600 miles (9,000 kilometers) above the spot's coiling crimson clouds.
"Raw images will be posted in (the) coming days," the space agency said.
Juno launched on August 5, 2011, from Cape Canaveral, Florida, and has been orbiting Jupiter for just over one year.
