Juno NASA’s Jupiter probe. Its 2016 mission in turn revealed many surprises, prompting NASA to claim that this seemingly wild, far-from-Earth planet could still contain a hidden planet. “strange life forms”.
After dramatic discoveries of water and many Earth-like molecules, the mysterious green spot in this image of Jupiter continues to show that the planet bears similarities to Earth.
According to the file SpaceASA confirmed The green spot is lightning that forms similarly to lightning on Earth.

“On Earth, lightning originates from water clouds and most often occurs at the equator. Meanwhile, on Jupiter, lightning is also likely to occur in clouds containing solutions aqueous ammonia. seen most often at the poles” NASA officials explained.
The discovery joins a series of discoveries that have changed NASA’s view of the atmosphere beneath the choppy sea of clouds seen from above. It shows another layer of atmospheric weather, deep below, with traces of heavy elements.
blue lightning Not only is this interesting because it points to another similarity between this planet and Earth, but also because some recent studies suggest that lightning plays a very important role in a planet giving rise to life.
Notably, Jupiter also attracts scientists because of the giant moons that orbit it, the most famous of which is – the location that will host NASA’s Aurora Clipper life-hunting spacecraft, slated for launch in late 2024.
