Exclamation A page of cool images showing Saturn's aurora

Spoiler: Full photo 


Scientists first observed Saturnís auroras in 1979. Decades later, these shimmering ribbons of light still fascinate. For one thing theyíre magnificently tall, rising hundreds of miles above the planetís poles.

And unlike on Earth where bright displays fizzle after only a few hours, auroras on Saturn can shine for days.

Auroras are produced when speeding particles accelerated by the sunís energy collide with gases in a planetís atmosphere. The gases fluoresce, emitting flashes of light at different wavelengths. Watch the video to see an edge-on view of Saturnís northern and southern lights courtesy of NASAís Hubble Space Telescope.


Video about it
