I came across this from the National Optical-Infrared Astronomy Research Laboratory and thought others here might enjoy it:
"Detailed new images of Jupiter captured in different colors of light reveal a multitude of atmospheric features"
The detailed images can be viewed by selecting from the column of thumbnails on the right.

Includes a lovely 225/275/343 trichrome image. I don't recall seeing many trichrome UV images outside of this forum.

Agree, that's lovely. I remember seeing blue water in the NIR outside this forum, but I can't find it now.

Found it, it is here, quite deep in the web page: https://www.randombi...90infrared.html

I don't have a 225nm filter but that with the 275nm is interesting. I am surprised they went with 225, 275 and 343nm. I would have expected a 250, 313, 365nm UVC, UVB and UVA mix. But maybe that is just too much Mercury. Seeing other bands is nice. I like iodine at 208nm snd I am hoping lights come down in cost.

Fab photos and article.

I did come across mention of tri-colour UV images in an old article on microscopy (I seem to remember from the 1940s or 50s), but good to see it being done here.
