Among Hubble’s notable achievements this year are spectacular images of the planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, each year as part of observations recorded by The Legacy of the Exoplanets Atmosphere (OPAL) program. ), Which follows the agency NASA.
Project Opel photos taken in September and October of this year reveal some fascinating new details Our planets Hubble images of exoplanets are extremely high resolution images, except for those taken by observations of nearby planets.
In this year’s images, images of the planets Uranus and Neptune may appear blurred in the sky due to their relative magnitude, and these images tell us that Jupiter’s red dot changes its shape and color.
Hubble also captured Saturn’s magnificent aurora, revealing radio wave activity and the asymmetric aurora borealis representing an unbalanced magnetic field.
Hubble images allowed Neptune to observe a dark storm that moved very differently as it orbited the cold sky, and images also revealed clouds in Uranus surrounded by its rings and moons.
On Thursday, September 4, as the storm appeared to be turbulent, clouds were blowing around the planet, and the planet was surrounded by a strange belt, covered with unusual orange and red bands around the equator, which were usually white or light brown.
Many red dots appear above the equator, and researchers refer to these as new storms, which can be defined as “hurricane cycles” that are temporary rather than semi-permanent red dots directly below.
On September 12, Hubble captured images of a curved planet undergoing seasonal changes as it orbits the Sun, similar to Earth, but the difference is that Saturn has 29 Earth years and each of its seasons is about 7.5 years.
As temperatures change in both hemispheres, clouds and the color of Saturn’s lines change, and they differ significantly from last year when the northern hemisphere was at the end of summer.
According to the planet Uranus, photographed on October 25, it spends spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and because it is so far away from the Sun, Saturn’s orbit period (year) is even longer as a season in Uranus. 21 Earth years.
Finally, images of the planet Neptune were taken on September 7, and it is believed that the southern hemisphere goes into spring, and the seasons there will last more than 40 Earth years.
New images reveal that the strange dark Neptune storm is still pending, and the observer can see the storm in the image on the upper left of the planet, where he will see a dark circle around the South Pole. This is the first storm to be detected by Voyager 2 in August 1989.
