Hubble Images Uranus and Neptune in 2018
New storms appeared in both Uranus’ (top) and Neptune’s (bottom) north polar regions in 2018. The Uranus storm was visible to ground-based telescopes as a bright spot, while the dark Neptune spot was only visible to the Hubble Space Telescope. Hubble can see at blue wavelengths at higher resolution than ground-based telescopes can.
