(ORDO NEWS) — There are seasons on Saturn, but the seasons last quite long due to the distance from the Sun. It’s summer on the planet now.
The Hubble Space Telescope, created by NASA and ESA, captured a beautiful picture of the northern hemisphere of Saturn.
“The clear image from the space telescope shows increased cloud activity as the atmosphere is warming up from direct sunlight,” NASA said in a statement released Thursday.
The telescope took the photo on July 4th. The image shows a reddish haze in the northern hemisphere, which may be caused by hot summer sunlight.
The difference between Saturn is the planet’s ice rings, and they are here in all their glory. “How and when the rings formed remains one of the biggest mysteries in our solar system,” NASA said.
