Hubble just spotted something massive coming out of Uranus

Recommended Posts

The Hubble space telescope has spotted a huge shimmering region on Uranus – and it’s caused by powerful bursts of solar wind.

Pictures show effect of drinking three bottles of wine a day for 10 years

No giggling at the back, please.

Scientists from the Paris Observatory used the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to take a look at the auroras on Uranus – caused by streams of charged particles like electrons that come from various origins such as solar winds, the planetary ionosphere, and moon volcanism.

They become caught in powerful magnetic fields and are channeled into the upper atmosphere, where their interactions with gas particles, such as oxygen or nitrogen, set off spectacular bursts of light.

They said no giggling... Can't help it! My inner child is amused!

I was already giggling before I clicked the topic link, and was quite disappointed to find a legitimate article about the subject once inside.
