Hubble’s New Views of Jupiter
This video presents two new views of Jupiter taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
First, the video presents the latest visible-light image of the gas giant that was taken by Hubble on 25 August 2020, captured when the planet was 653 million kilometres from Earth. Hubble’s sharp view is giving researchers an updated weather report on the monster planet’s turbulent atmosphere, including a remarkable new storm brewing, and a cousin of the Great Red Spot changing colour — again.
Next, the video fades into a new multiwavelength observation in ultraviolet/visible/near-infrared light of Jupiter that was obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope on 25 August 2020. This observation is giving researchers an entirely new view of the giant planet. Hubble’s near infrared imaging, combined with ultraviolet views, provides a unique panchromatic look that offers insights into the altitude and distribution of the planet’s haze and particles.Credit:
