Jupiter’s rare and astonishing aurora observation | photo


Spotted Juno spacecraft NASA’s awe-inspiring aurora borealis for a planet Purchaser Resulting from charged particles from the volcanic moon Io.

According to the British newspaper Daily Mail, it has been configured Aurora Borealis The spectacular blue ring on Jupiter, by the charged particles emerging from the volcanic moon

Polar light, also known as dawn twilight storms, appears to illuminate early in the morning the north and south poles of Jupiter.

And resemble those lights passing by Jupiter in a similar way to “polar storms” that ripple across the Earth’s polar sky, according to NASA and the University of Liege team, which was behind the new discovery.

The lights that make up the dawn storm of Jupiter do not match the patterns of the solar wind, leading researchers to realize that most of them are inhabited by charged particles from Io.

These particles are ionized and trapped around the gaseous giant planet by its magnetic field, creating an early morning circular light show around the polar regions.

Dawn storms, first detected by Hubble’s faint object camera in 1994, consist of the short-lived, but intense brightness and expansion of Jupiter’s main auroral elliptical.

Before Juno, observations of the aurora borealis only provided side views, hiding everything that was happening on the night side of the planet.
