Auroras seen on Uranus for first time
“The last time we had any definite signals of auroral activity on Uranus was when NASA’s Voyager 2 probe swung by in 1986.
But this is the first time we can actually see these emissions light up with an Earth-based telescope,” said study leader Laurent Lamy, an astronomer at the Observatoire de Paris in Meudon, France.
