SPACE: Jupiter Flies Its Bi Flag

Bi Jupiter - NASA

Jupiter can be seen in a whole new light in a photo released by NASA showing the planet in the colours of the trans flag.

The photo, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in February 2017 and posted on Tuesday (October 16) on the US government space agency’s Astronomy Picture of the Day page, shows the largest planet in our Solar System in near-ultraviolet light—leading to its white, pink and blue appearance.

“Jupiter appears different in near ultraviolet light, partly because the amount of sunlight reflected back is distinct, giving differing cloud heights and latitudes discrepant brightnesses,” NASA explains on the page.
