Astronomers have captured the highest resolution images of Jupiter ever obtained from the ground. The photos were taken by using a technique known as “lucky imaging technique”. The picture was captured in infrared by the Gemini North Telescope in Hawaii. This technique helps remove the blurring effect while looking through Earth’s turbulent atmosphere.
According to Michael Wong, who led the research team,“ The Gemini data were critical because they allowed us to probe deeply into Jupiter’s clouds on a regular schedule. We used a very powerful technique called lucky imagery that eliminates the blurring effect of looking through the turbulent atmosphere of Earth.”
