This imagery captured by the Hubble Space Telescope on May 19, 2016, depicts bright auroras on the planet Jupiter. Auroras are produced by the interaction of a planet's magnetic field with its atmosphere and the stream of charged particles emitted by the Sun (solar wind). These auroras are over a thousand times brighter than those seen on Earth and were captured using Hubble's far-ultraviolet-light detector. NASA was imaging Jupiter ahead of the July 2016 arrival of its Juno spacecraft that is scheduled to study the magnetic field of the largest planet in our Solar System.
The full-color footage of Jupiter was photographed at a different time as part of Hubble's Outer Planet Atmospheres Legacy (OPAL) program, that annually captures global maps of the outer planets.
