Wow! Scientists have used the Non-Linear Optics Near-Infrared Camera and Spectrograph (NICMOS) instrument onboard the Hubble Space Telescope and successfully captured infrared auroras in Uranus for the first time! Making a strong connection between auroras and active regions in the planet’s atmosphere, its discovery returned data that is invaluable in figuring out more about the extreme environment of Uranus. Researchers now have a much better understanding of what causes the mysterious auroras that have been seen on the planet.
