NASA welcomes Summer on Saturn this July! Hubble Telescope sends beautiful images

NASA sees how the gas giant looks like in Summer as Hubble Space Telescope sends images of Saturn

NASA recently released a new image of Saturn which is captured by the Hubble Space Telescope. The Hubble Telescope does not seem to be getting any younger, however, it still maintains its status to send beautiful images to scientists and researchers working on Earth.

NASA’s Hubble Telescope has been operating dedicatedly in space for an astonishing 30 years. The telescope recently captured the beautiful image of Saturn for the Outer Planets Atmospheres Legacy (OPAL) project on July 4, 2020. The telescope has captured a stunning picture of the sixth planet in our solar system, Saturn, and it doesn’t even look real.

NASA Studies the climatic conditions on Saturn

The Hubble Space Telescope captured the image of Saturn on July 4 as a part of the Outer Planets Atmospheres Legacy (OPAL) project, which seeks to monitor and study the atmospheric conditions on our solar system’s giant gas planets.

The image also shows a glimpse of the moons of the gas giant. Mimus, which bears a suspiciously close resemblance to the Death Star, is on the right. The icy moon Enceladus, which has emerged as a top contender for finding life out there in the solar system, is beneath the planet. The image, which NASA calls “Summertime on Saturn,” shows the gassy planet in stunning detail.

The gas giant’s hazy atmosphere is composed mostly of hydrogen and helium, with small traces of methane, water vapor, and ammonia. Normally, hydrocarbons give the ringed planet’s atmosphere a yellowish-brown effect. In the image, Saturn has a slightly reddish tint, possibly caused by summer sunlight either altering atmospheric circulation or changing the composition of chemicals. The planet shows the beautiful nature of Saturn in the summer season something that comes as a surprise after the event of storms on the planet found water on Europa.
