Jupiter - NASA Visions of the Future

NASA's Juno spacecraft arrived at Jupiter in July of 2016 to observe Jupiter's auroras from above the polar regions, studying them like never before possible.

The clouds of Jupiter boast the most spectacular light show in the solar system, with dazzling northern and southern lights to impress any space traveler. Jupiter's auroras are hundreds of times more powerful than the Aurora Borealis on Earth, and they form a glowing ring around each pole that is bigger than our home planet. Revolving outside this Jovian aurora are the glowing, electric “footprints” of Jupiter's three largest moons.
