Space Game! Where in the Solar System is Destination Eleven? (day 1)

Hey SpaceBloggers!

Have I got something special for you today, or what!  (The answer would be, yes.) As you know, day 1 of a new Space Game destination is traditionally picture day. Well today you get a fantastic picture from Destination Eleven and THEN SOME! Intrigued?

Believe it or not, these are pictures of the tallest know Northern Lights in the solar system. They stretch above D11’s northern hemisphere for 746 miles. That’s like stretching a curtain of lights all the way from Chicago to New York City! And then tipping that light show on its end so that it’s pointing straight out into space.

Now are you ready for the ‘THEN SOME’?  Just click to download than hit play to watch these fantastic auroras in motion over D11. (courtesy NASA, JPL, SSI) BTW, that white glow in the distance is sunlight shining on D11’s day side.

Cool, right? (The answer would again be, yes. Totally!)
