Now, thanks to a spacecraft orbiting Jupiter, you can “hear” what the planet’s extreme auroras sound like.
NASA’s Juno probe, which went into orbit around Jupiter in July, collected data about the radio emissions coming from Jupiter’s auroras and beamed it back to Earth. Scientists then took the data and turned it into sound, allowing you to hear the eerie tone of Jupiter’s powerful cosmic light show. (Skip to about the 20 second mark to get to actual sound of the auroras.)
