Wild Lights And Sounds Come From Jupiter

Wild Lights And Sounds Come From Jupiter

| On 02, Jul 2016

Jupiter is putting a light and sound show.

NASA tweeted a photo showing the largest planet in the Solar System sporting lights display. Are they aliens partying for the Summer? Well, unfortunately, they aren’t. It’s actually an aurora display.

Jupiter also produced a roaring sound

The stunning image and sound was captured by Juno Spacecraft, which will orbit around Jupiter on July 4.

The aurora is quite different compared to Earth’s, which are caused by solar storms. Jupiter pulls charge particles from its surroundings, including the solar winds and even volcano. The sound, on the other hand, was a bow shock, which is an analogous to a sonic boom.

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun. This is a gas planet, which atmosphere is made up of mostly hydrogen gas and helium gas. It is quite popular for its great red spot, which is a giant storm.
