UNITED STATES – NASA, in a joint effort with the European Space Agency, has revealed three new images of Jupiter. Therefore, the astronomy loving community is surprised because, although these were captured on January 11, 2017, they have been revealed so far. So, thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope, these incredible photos were captured. In this sense, not only was Hubble in charge of this majesty, but he also had the help of the Gemini Observatory. For this reason, specialists have detailed that these three images were taken at the same time in “infrared, visible and ultraviolet wavelengths”, according to the report of the National Laboratory for Research in Optical-Infrared Astronomy (NOIR Lab). In this press release, it is clarified that “these views reveal details of atmospheric characteristics, such as the great red spot, super storms and gigantic cyclones which span the planet’s disk”. In the same context, it should be noted that these astonishing images were not only captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.

In this way, Hubble took the images referring to the visible and ultraviolet wavelengths with its powerful Wide Fields 3 camera. The infrared photos were taken with the Observatory’s Near-InfraRed Imager (NIRI). Gemini North, a terrestrial telescope located in Hawaii that undoubtedly provided 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 amazing infrared. Without a doubt, NASA continues to surprise astronomy enthusiasts with photographs that are undeniably of real beauty, as is the case with Jupiter.
