’Lucky Imaging’ technique helps Astronomers capture spectacular Jupiter imagery

Observations from the Gemini North telescope in Hawaii, reveal lightning strikes and storm systems forming around deep clouds of water ice and liquid. The images show warm, deep layers of the planet’s atmosphere glowing through gaps in thick cloud cover in a ’jack-o-lantern’-like effect. The ’Lucky Imaging technique scrubs out the blurring effect of looking through Earth’s turbulent atmosphere.

Why isn't Jupiter flat? Or is Earth the only flat celestial body in the cosmos?

This is what astronomy looks like on acid. I personally prefer a combination of beer and my painkillers for it (as well as beta blockers to steady my shaky hands) but I'm sure LSD or 'shrooms would work brilliantly, especially for UFO spotting. Drugs are bad, kids.
