UNITED STATES.- The POT, in a joint work with the European Space Agency, have revealed three new images of Jupiter. Therefore, the astronomy-loving community is surprised because, although these were captured on January 11, 2017, so far they have come to light. Thus, through the Hubble Space Telescope these incredible photos have been captured.
In this sense, not only was Hubble in charge of this majesty, but it also had the help of the Gemini Observatory. For this reason, the specialists have detailed that these three images have been taken at the same time in “infrared, visible and ultraviolet wavelengths”, according to the report of the National Optical-Infrared Astronomy Research Laboratory (NOIR Lab).
In this press release it is specified that “These views reveal details of atmospheric features, such as the Great Red Spot, super storms and gigantic cyclones that span the planet’s disk.” In the same context, it is worth noting that these amazing images were not only captured by the Hubble Space Telescope of the POT.
In this way, Hubble has taken the shots referring to the visible and ultraviolet wavelengths with its powerful Wide Fields Camera 3. For its part, the infrared photos have been taken with the Near-InfraRed Imager (NIRI) of the Observatory Gemini North, a terrestrial telescope located in Hawaii and that has undoubtedly contributed extremely valuable data in the investigation.
On the other hand, the images taken by the Hubble Telescope and the Gemini Observatory have been shared and, in them, you can see the visible and ultraviolet wavelength data, as well as the incredible infrared. Undoubtedly, NASA continues to surprise astronomy lovers with photographs that are undeniably a true beauty, as is the case with Jupiter.
