Saturnian Aurora – NASA, ESA and A. Schaller

Painting for NASA/STScI

This image took my breath away but I had to do some digging to find out if it was real or not – it’s not..

“The above is a NASA artist’s conception of the visual phenomenon as observed by the human eye. The credit for this graphic is NASA, ESA and A. Schaller, STScI-PRC05-06b. The familiar visible hydrogen spectrum is shown at right.”
