The Gemini North telescope in Hawaii and the Hubble Space Telescope have captured Jupiter in visible, infrared and ultraviolet light, revealing striking atmospheric features of the gas giant in detail.

"We are grateful for the privilege of observing Ka'āwela (Jupiter) from a place that is unique in both its astronomical quality and its cultural significance."

Gemini North's Near-InfraRed Imager provided the infrared wavelength image of Jupiter while Hubble pulled double duty using its Wide Field Camera 3 to take images in both visible and ultraviolet light.

All three images were taken at the same time on January 11, 2017, to provide a comparison.

Across the three images, Jupiter looks entirely different.

The Great Red Spot almost disappears in the infrared wavelengths, but a dark region within the storm appears larger than in the visible light image.

Combining Hubble's visible light images of the storm with Gemini's infrared observations revealed that the dark features are holes in the cloud layer.

Normally, this process is blocked by Jupiter's massive clouds.

Check out the comparison between the glowing infrared image of Jupiter contrasted with the much more mellow visible light image in the slider below.

In infrared, Jupiter's warm layers deep beneath the clouds appear to glow through cloud gaps.

Wong compared the infrared image of Jupiter to a jack-o'-lantern.

Meanwhile, the planet's famed bands of clouds are visible in all three wavelengths.

The Red Spot Jr., called Oval BA by scientists, is a storm below the Great Red Spot that makes an appearance across the visible and ultraviolet images.
