Earth and Saturn have one thing in common. Auroras are visible on both planets. You might be wondering what exactly Aurora is? This is a beautiful natural light created in our sky. Auroras are usually visible near the North and South Poles at night. American space agency NASA has shared a glimpse of how auroras are formed in Saturn on its Instagram handle. NASA has shown the picture of Aurora formed on Saturn. The special thing is that the picture was clicked in the year 2004.

The space agency wrote that the bright aurora seen in this image has arisen due to a disturbance in the air. Recently, research has also confirmed that the aurora formed on Saturn is due to the winds there. Scientists at the University of Leicester have claimed that some of Saturn's auroras are produced by winds rotating inside the planet's atmosphere.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and Cassini spacecraft have explored Saturn extensively. Cassini spacecraft was launched in the year 1997. He reached Saturn in the year 2004. Since then it has tried to understand Saturn in detail.

Regarding the current picture, NASA says that the auroras that form on Saturn are due to the pressure of solar winds. The picture was captured in the year 2004. The special thing is that on Earth, auroras are visible for a few minutes to hours, whereas on Saturn they are visible for several days. This picture was captured by the Hubble Telescope, which has been keeping an eye on our universe for the last 30 years.
