Hubble photographs stunning photos of Jupiter’s giant auroras

The gas giant has put on a beautiful light show in the form of auroras the size of Earth at its north pole. The Hubble Space Telescope captured the display.

Unlike the auroras here on Earth, which show up as visible light, Jupiter’s electric blue whirl is ultraviolet, so you wouldn’t be able to see it as depicted in the composite image above. But Hubble is able to capture the incredible detail.


Auroras are created when high-energy particles from the solar wind interact with a planet’s magnetic field. The auroras at Jupiter’s poles actually never stop, revealed NASA.

The stunning images have captured the world’s imagination just as NASA spacecraft Juno arrived at Jupiter after a 5 year long voyage.

Juno crossed the boundary of Jupiter's immense magnetic field and its Waves instrument recorded the encounter with the bow shock over the course of about two hours on June 24, 2016. "Bow shock" is where the supersonic solar wind is heated and slowed by Jupiter's magnetosphere. It is analogous to a sonic boom on Earth.

The next day, June 25, 2016, the Waves instrument witnessed the crossing of the magnetopause. "Trapped continuum radiation" refers to waves trapped in a low-density cavity in Jupiter's magnetosphere.

Juno may also help scientists solve mysteries such as why it’s Great Red Spot is shrinking. According to space.com this storm feature has been known to astronomers ever since telescopes were first available in the early 1600s. But since 1930, astronomers have noticed the storm getting smaller and smaller; in 2014 it was at its smallest stature ever. Once estimated as large enough to fit three Earths across its width, the storm is now no bigger than Earth's diameter.

  1. Aurora. Im Not entirely convinced that's what it IS.
    Though Likely, I am exploring other possibilities.

Strange space vehicles seem to appear out of flashes of light - There is a big cover up underway?

Strange things going on in space lately.

The following video recorded from the ISS live feed cam shows multiple flashes of light in space on which several unidentified flying objects seem to appear out of these flashes.


Where do these strange space vehicles come from and who are the pilots? They were teleported through time from another dimension?

And could it be that these advanced machinery have anything to do with the strange green / yellow anomalies / craft that have been seen in space in recent weeks? if so, then what could be the reason for their arrival?


Now, there are rumors that there is a big cover up underway, these green/yellow craft and the strange space vehicles are but a few of of these types of alien spacecraft. It seems there are larger spacecraft en route to Earth and the global military powers, British, USA, China, Russia, etc. are gearing up for a code red alert "Status unknown spacecraft."



The following video recorded by Jujubee's Adams last week, u…

Huge UFO hurtling towards the Moon in 5K

BruceSeesall shows a UFO hurtling towards the moon. The footage was captured last year. We get in close in 5K strong magnification.


Other UFO sightings as shown in the video: Directional changes seen in infrared camera...UFO changing directions in the skies of Montreal Canada and UFO's plunging in and out of clouds on the moon seen in high quality 5K.

What's wrong with this satellite image of Saunders Island?

There is a list of satellite map images with missing or unclear data. Some locations on free, publicly viewable satellite map services have such issues due to having been intentionally digitally obscured or blurred for various reasons.


Now take a look at the imagery of Saunders Island, a crescent-shaped island 8.8 km (5.5 mi) long, lying between Candlemas Island and Montagu Island near Antarctica and you see that the images having been intentionally digitally obscured by Google Earth.


We may wonder why they have digitally obscured a part of the island or it must be that they have to hide something!


Something like a never-seen-before lake of bubbling lava under the island?


The shocking discovery was made by the British Antarctic Survey using powerful satellite imagery of the Southern Hemisphere.

The Antarctic survey confirmed not only the presence of molten lava in the crater of Mount Michael, an active volcano on Saunders Island but this lava lake is the eighth of its kind to be found…

NASA tracks cone-shaped UFO before it disappears into deep space

The ISS live feed cam captures a cone-shaped metallic object for about 22 minutes before it moves upwards and disappears into deep space.


The stunning footage, recorded on February 21, 2020, has led to many speculations about what the object could be.

While many people suggest that it is a real UFO, whether alien or a man-made spacecraft belonging to the space fleet, others say that the cone-shaped object is a satellite or a probe intended for experimental purposes in deep space, released by the ISS.
