Hubble Space Telescope Discovered Neptune's Massive Storm Disappearance

Hubble Space Telescope Discovered Neptune's Massive Storm Disappearance”

The event becomes the first, when scientists have been able to observe the storm from its beginning to the extinction.

While, scientists say that such kind of massive storms endures for just few years on the breezy planet and it is not that one storm, which known as the Jupiter's Great Red Spot that has been witnessed by researchers since a couple of past centuries.

Neptune's swirling storms give Nasa an opportunity to better understand the atmosphere of the distant icy planet. As per the previous simulation, the vertex was expected to drift toward the equator of the planet. According to Michael Wong from the University of California at Berkeley, it is different from what well-known studies have led people to expect. The storm is gaining consistency from the material it founds in Neptune's atmosphere due to the fact that its' movement is in an anticyclonic direction.

The mysterious storm on Neptune was first identified by the Hubble Telescope in 2015.

The storm on the solar system's farthest planet started as wide as the Atlantic Ocean but that dark spot is getting smaller and smaller, right before Hubble's mechanical eyes, NASA said. In comparison, Jupiter's GRS has been visible for at least 200 years now, but it's also predicted to die within two decades. This is the first one that actually has been photographed as it is dying.

"We have no evidence of how these vortices are formed or how fast they rotate", Agustín Sánchez-Lavega, a scientist at the University of the Basque Country in Spain who worked on the project, said. "It is most likely that they arise from an instability in the sheared eastward and westward winds". The dynamic solutions indicated anticyclones under Neptune's wind shear would drift toward the equator. When the vertex and equator would come closer it would create an effusion of cloud activity perhaps a stunning display. Instead the storm is already fading away and is going without a bang. Because of its system of three, it should be free enough to alternate between traffic lanes so to speak.

Hubble and the Voyager are the only machines that have observed Neptune's vortices.

This series of Hubble Space Telescope images taken over 2 years tracks the demise of a giant dark vortex on the planet Neptune. It is only the Hubble telescope which can use ultraviolet light to probe these outer planets. Additional data, from a Hubble program targeting the dark vortex, are from an worldwide team including Wong, Tollefson, Sánchez-Lavega, Andrew Hsu, Imke de Pater, Amy Simon, Ricardo Hueso, Lawrence Sromovsky, Patrick Fry, Statia Luszcz-Cook, Heidi Hammel, Marc Delcroix, Katherine de Kleer, Glenn Orton, and Christoph Baranec.

Wong's paper appears online in the Astronomical Journal on February 15, 2018.

The Hubble Space Telescope is a project of global cooperation between NASA and ESA (European Space Agency). The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore conducts Hubble science operations.
