The Department of Awesome Natural Phenomena has features amazing auroras before, but never an aurora on another planet! This extraordinary sight, brought to us by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, is an incredibly colossal aurora taking place on Jupiter:

“At the gas giant’s north pole, the most powerful and luminous northern lights in the solar system shimmer and glow in an endless geomagnetic storm that’s larger than our entire planet.”

That’s right, Jupiter itself is already so awesomely huge that its auroras are larger than the planet Earth.

Watch this time-lapse video of the Jupiter auroras and then visit the Hubble website to learn more about this amazing phenomena.
