Caption

Computer illustration of aurora on Jupiter (blue). These are caused when charged particles from the Sun (the solar wind) interact with Jupiter's magnetic field. The particles are channelled to the poles, where they collide with gases in Jupiter's upper atmosphere, causing them to emit light. They are similar to the northern and southern lights on Earth.
