Auroras and hazes glow in this composite image of Jupiter taken by the James Webb Space Telescope’s Near-Infrared Camera (NIRCam). NIRCam has three specialized infrared filters that showcase details of the planet.

Since infrared light is invisible to the human eye, the light has been mapped onto the visible spectrum: the auroras are mapped to redder colors, hazes to yellows and greens, and light reflected from a deeper main cloud to blues.

在这张由詹姆斯·韦伯太空望远镜的近红外相机(NIRCam)拍摄的木星合成图像中,极光和雾霾发出辉光。NIRCam有三个专门的红外滤镜,可以展示行星的细节。

由于红外光对人眼是不可见的,所以它被映射到可见光谱上:极光被映射到更红的颜色,雾霾被映射到黄色和绿色,而从较深的主云反射的光则映射为蓝色。
