Some strange things are happening on Neptune
We are talking about an abnormal change in the atmosphere of this planet, or rather its temperature:
An international group of astronomers who studied the Neptune atmosphere from 2003 to 2020 found equally interesting and surprising data
So, in 2005, when the summer of about 40 years began in the Southern Hemisphere of Neptune, the temperature of the atmosphere in this area began to decrease instead of increasing ️
And in general, in the period from 2003 to 2018, the average temperature of Neptune’s atmosphere decreased by 8 degrees Celsius, and from 2018 to 2020 it rose by 11 degrees:
And all this is still for unknown reasons))
Of course, private companies have versions at hand:.. well, where else without it
For example, according to one hypothesis, these fluctuations are associated with an 11-year cycle of solar activity, and according to another version, the cause of the fluctuations is a change in the chemical composition of Neptune’s atmosphere … well, for unknown reasons
And in finding out all this, experts can help the super-powerful James Webb space telescope, which will very soon begin its so promising work.
By the way, NASA also plans to send Neptune Odyssey equipment to Neptune, which is scheduled to launch at the beginning of the next decade, but it will take about 13 years to reach the end point:
