"Hubble" captures an image of Jupiter with an unprecedented detail
The photo of the "Red Planet" published - VIDEO
A new image of Jupiter, the largest Planet in the Solar System, was captured in high definition by NASA's "Hubble" telescope. Taken from the "Wide Field Camera 3" on June 27th but released only on August 8th, part of the Outer Planets Atmospheres (Opal) program, it provides details of the "Big Red Spot", of the broadband at the equator and of the nuance of colors among the vortices of the planet's atmosphere.
The image was captured 400 million miles from Earth and almost in front of the Sun.
The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a space telescope that was launched into orbit in 1990 and in July undermined some models of physics with the discovery of an accretion disk around a small black hole, generally present only near supermassive black holes (see AVIONEWS).
