Jupiter’s “southern lights” (also known as auroras) are shown in this animation of false-color maps from NASA’s Juno spacecraft.

The red coloring of some of the features indicates that those emissions came from deeper in Jupiter’s atmosphere; green and white indicate emissions from higher up in the atmosphere.
