Hey guys and gals, more amazing footage to share with you!

Video: Saturn’s Spectacular Aurora in Action


(click to open player in new window)



How can you not love Cassini? The latest treat NASA’s spacecraft has provided us is the first ever movie of Saturn’s incredible aruroras.

The high-resolution video was assembled from 472 still images, spaced over 81 hours in October, that show the phenomenon in three dimensions. The lights can be seen as a rippling, vertical sheet up to 750 miles high above Saturn’s northern hemisphere.

“The auroras have put on a dazzling show, shape-shifting rapidly and exposing curtains that we suspected were there, but hadn’t seen on Saturn before,” Cal Tech scientist Andrew Ingersoll, a member of the Cassini imaging team that processed the new video, said in a press release. “Seeing these things on another planet helps us understand them a little better when we see them on Earth.”


Honestly, I find this video truly amazing and quite frankly eerie but beautiful!
In this YouTube video a NASA scientist explains what's going on:





I'd lank to thank member lagenese for recording and uploading the ATS media video, as my ISP needs to be sacked in the morning!

Thanks mate!

Very nice find, as usual! S&F for this!
Space exploration is still at a very young age, but we are from the stars, and we will return to the stars, it's only a question of time!
Thanks for this link, it's a very nice vid showing that aurora.

Cheers mate, I'm struggling to upload the video, as I have restricted bandwidth (another thread another day lol!)

As soon as I can it I will!

All the best kiwifoot!

There's always someone on ATS who is scouring the web looking for this kind of stuff, that's what makes is a great site.....10,000 pairs of eyes bringing the best stories all to one place!

All the best, kiwifoot

That is an amazing video.

*S&F*

The solar system is a great place to discover new things everyday.
There is so much we don't know about space and videos like these are an excellent way of proving that.

I'm going to give this a bump because I think that any members that didn't catch it deserve a second chance!

Enjoy ATS!

All the best, Kiwifoot
