Lightning [ID: 4]

Jovian lightning is hard to catch. You have to take lots of images and hope to get lucky enough to catch a flash.

    On earth, tiny compared to Jupiter, we have only one polar cap. There may be a threshold of size for polar caps.

    We see the light flashes, yet none talk of glaciers in the sky causing thunder on earth.

      focus on the job

    While it would be difficult to capture an image of lightning with a single attempt, perhaps the scope can be narrowed by focusing on areas of higher and lower magnetism or areas where there are higher concentrations of ammonia, potentially helping create "shallow lightning" in the higher reaches of the atmosphere. Even if those images don't capture lightning, they could perhaps still provide some insight, making them worthwhile.

      very good idea, does the space craft have ways of identifying these areas?

  4. comment by Permeke-45 on 2022-07-04 19:06 UT

    Are there certain areas where it is more likely to occur?

    • comment by Klokun-01 on 2022-09-29 07:21 UT

      places with ammonia or places with high or low magnitisum

    its cool

    Do you think it's livable for human beings to be on and why hasn't NASA landed a spaceship on it yet like they did on the moon

      Quisiera saber si hay tormentas eléctricas si también llueve y si es así que condiciones más nesesitariamo para saber si hay vida ya que el agua es uno de los componentes principales para ello

      Hola me gustaría saber más cuanto tardarían la unanimidad en mandar una misión aquí y ver si hay vida aunque sea microscópica también si hay vida inteligente como procederíamos para entrar en este lugar ya que podrían tomarnos por invasores y aver represalias contra nuestro planeta

      Gravity reported is said to be 80x earth- you wanna walk on that?

    • comment by Polarcuspian on 2022-09-28 20:15 UT

      This place spins in ten hours. How could you land on that?

      Look how huge it is. It spins as a planet in about ten hours, only.

      Breaks your legs just getting outta orbit.

    I would like to mention the Venezuelan phenomenon of Catatumbo

    In addition to indicating the possibility of having several Ships in this system powered by Jupiter Electricity

    I really want to see these pictures!

  9. comment by Oujianquan-62 on 2021-02-08 09:50 UT

    And also I think those are lightning which is made by the heavy storms continually

  10. comment by Oujianquan-62 on 2021-02-08 09:47 UT

    I think those are ice acting like mirrors reflecting lights

    • comment by Polarcuspian on 2022-09-28 20:11 UT

      Keep your observations.

  11. comment by Champigneulles-60 on 2021-02-01 03:10 UT

    lightning is made when ice molecules rub against each other and that rubbing causes electrons to form or something, and so then positives catch the negatives and lightning strikes so maybe, it might just be different but most likely not...

      Have you ever heard a glacier when it calves? It sounds the same as thunder in the sky. It gets cold up there. Things form and unform very quickly, and we only catch the rain, or snow.

      While in the outterspace of Nunavut, the same sound would occur on the 10 feet of frozen ice on my lake as would occur in the sky with ICE LIGHTS. We can infer.

    Being able to capture pictures of the lightning actively taking place on Jupiter with the JunoCamp would make for a great photograph. Maybe the details from the photo could show us more of how long the lightning appears to last in one location.

    Maybe lightning forms different on different planets?

  14. comment by Stanchiang-24 on 2020-05-29 04:41 UT

    I think the lighting would be very cool to see

  15. comment by Drewpinsky-64 on 2020-05-29 01:11 UT

    I think lightning would be mesmerizing to see. I think that these images would really fascinate the public.

  16. comment by Savchend_PH104 on 2020-05-27 03:55 UT

    I think the lightning would be fascinating to get pictures of. I wonder how they compare to Earth's lightning storms?

  17. comment by Huebner-95 on 2019-12-17 13:28 UT

    I think it is a great idea, because it might be different than earth's

  18. comment by Gilyarovskij-89 on 2019-11-11 07:45 UT

    I think this is worth a shot

    • comment by iamthebee_26 on 2020-05-04 18:19 UT

      yeah i think that it might actually be worth spending time on

    This is the Natural Photograph compared to the previous post. Ryan Cornell @RKCornell56 go to Ryan Cornell on Facebook.

    This is from the Juno image where you examine the Polar Aurora of Jupiter... This has been processed to illuminate the darkness and reveal how the mixture of Light and darkness are actively stirred into to the atmosphere of Jupiter, here and give comparisons of the terminator spinning across the Planet...

      Wow this is very cool

  21. comment by Gorelysheva-71 on 2019-07-24 08:56 UT

    Is this open question? I am thinking to apply method to detect flash. Can I have many examples of this image?

    • comment by Kapur-96 on 2019-11-11 01:26 UT

      I think a camera that is set up to go off when flashes occur would be a great idea. By inventing this technology there would be no need to take so many photographs.
