Just stumbled across this, trying to find a video of this and verify

SOMETHING JUST HIT JUPITER: Last night, German astronomer Harald Paleske was watching the shadow of Io create a solar eclipse in the atmosphere of Jupiter when something unexpected happened. “A bright flash of light surprised me,” he says. “It could only be an impact.” Follow the arrows to the fireball:

Fascinating stuff.

Lucky that it was seen!

 

Juno Flies Past the Moon Ganymede and Jupiter, With Music by Vangelis

NASA
Jul 14, 2021

On June 7, 2021, NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew closer to Jupiter’s ice-encrusted moon Ganymede than any spacecraft in more than two decades. Less than a day later, Juno made its 34th flyby of Jupiter. This animation provides a “starship captain” point of view of each flyby. For both worlds, JunoCam images were orthographically projected onto a digital sphere and used to create the flyby animation. Synthetic frames were added to provide views of approach and departure for both Ganymede and Jupiter.

Looks a lot more liquid than what we see in more rocky worlds.

Jupiter with Callisto and Ganymede WITH ITS SHADOW

As requested on my other post people wanted to see a unedited one so here it is!!

Any feedback is welcome I used my Orion sky quest 8in Dobsonian Telescopes with a 10mm and 2x Barlow

My camera is a Sony a5000

So first I took a 0:24 second video

Then I put it into the program called PIPP that turned it into a AVI file

Then I took the AVI file in AutoStakkert and had it stack it altogether

Then did some fine tuning in registacks

Thank you!!

Nice capture.

If you have capture it at the time and date indicated on the image, then the moon on the lower left corner is not Callisto but Io.

Full view of Jupiter in infrared light

Full view of Jupiter in infrared light

Jupiter’s heat is largely internally generated — not from the sun. So the bands you’re seeing is where heat is rising from the interior, while the cold bands have cooled due to losing heat to space (in the form of infrared).

There is some sunlight related heating, but Jupiter emits twice as much as it gets from the sun. There are some that propose that Jupiter has some limited amounts of fusion going on in the interior to sustain this, but it could also just be latent heat of formation or due to mineral phase changes (crystallization processes).

NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured the image on Feb. 17, 2020 and sent it back nearly 500 million miles for us to marvel at.

At the time of the picture the spacecraft was around 15,000 miles from the cloud tops.

Some notable features in this view are the long, thin bands that run through the center of the image from top to bottom. Juno has observed these long streaks since its first close pass by Jupiter in 2016. The streaks are layers of haze particles that float above the underlying cloud features. Scientists don’t yet know exactly what these hazes are made of or how they form. Two jet streams in Jupiter’s atmosphere flank either side of the region where the narrow bands of haze typically appear, and some researchers speculate those jet streams may influence the formation of the high hazes.

The streaks are layers of haze particles that float above the underlying cloud features. Scientists don’t yet know exactly what these hazes are made of or how they form.

For me the most intriguing part of the picture are the streaks that form in the upper atmosphere , it has been theorised that life could exist in the cloud layers of Jupiter feeding on the chemicals in the cloud layers and gaining access to precious Sunlight , perhaps the streaks are something akin to algal bloom seen in Earths oceans , it could be the streaks are our first look at Jovian life.

Just a thought.

Scientist Predicts Higher Forms Of Alien Life on Europa

It’s ‘almost a racing certainty’ there’s alien life on Jupiter’s moon Europa—and Mars could be hiding primitive microorganisms, too. That’s the view of leading British space scientist Professor Monica Grady, who says the notion of undiscovered life in our galaxy isn’t nearly as far-fetched as we might expect.

Professor Grady, a Professor of Planetary and Space Science, says the frigid seas beneath Europa’s ice sheets could harbor ‘octopus’ like creatures. Meanwhile the deep caverns and caves found on Mars may also hide subterranean life-forms—as they offer shelter from intense solar radiation while also potentially boasting remnants of ice.

Professor Grady was speaking at Liverpool Hope University, where she’s just been installed as Chancellor, and revealed: “When it comes to the prospects of life beyond Earth, it’s almost a racing certainty that there’s life beneath the ice on Europa.”

“Elsewhere, if there’s going to be life on Mars, it’s going to be under the surface of the planet. “There you’re protected from solar radiation. And that means there’s the possibility of ice remaining in the pores of the rocks, which could act as a source of water.”

“If there is something on Mars, it’s likely to be very small—bacteria.”

“But I think we’ve got a better chance of having slightly higher forms of life on Europa, perhaps similar to the intelligence of an octopus.”

Well, if that’s the case then the universe could be teeming with life and probably advanced civilizations far ahead of us in technology that would perhaps seem like magic to us. One scientist said that there are more advanced civilizations partying around the universe than there are grains of sand on planet earth!!

I wouldn’t go that far but there is probably more life out there than we can ever imagine!

phys.org…

EnceladusI would go that far. Life teems. It’s the only thing life knows how to do. Just look at our own world, there’s life deep underground…inside the rocks…and they just found life inside the Chernobyl reactor that eats the radiation.

So, yes, absolutely, life is everywhere — and I use the word everywhere quite literally.

I love this stuff. We need to stop killing each other and get out in space! And hey, there is also Enceladus!
