Hubble Detects Ghostly Glow Surrounding Our Solar System

Hubble detects mysterious ghostly glow surrounding our solar system

This artist’s illustration shows the location and size of a hypothetical dust cloud surrounding our solar system. Credit: NASA, ESA, Andi James (STScI) Exhaust from falling comets makes space a dusty place Imagine walking into a room at night, turning off all the lights and closing the blinds. Still, a strange glow comes from the …

The James Webb Space Telescope peers into the ‘ghostly light’ of interstellar space

The first deep-field image of the cosmos taken by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has allowed scientists to study the faint, almost ghostly light of orphan stars that exist between the galaxies of galactic clusters. Gravitationally unbound to galaxies, these stars are pulled from their homes and drift through intergalactic space by the massive …

A ghostly glow surrounds the solar system and no one can explain it

A new analysis of Hubble data has concluded: there is too much light in space around the solar system. Not much extra light, of course. Just a subtle, ghostly glow, a slight excess that cannot be counted in a count of all light-emitting objects. All the stars and galaxies surrounding the solar system – and …

The ‘ghostly glow’ in the solar system could be a ‘new addition’ to our understanding of its structure

The ‘ghostly glow’ in the solar system could be a ‘new addition’ to our understanding of its structure – but the source remains a mystery NASA’s Hubble Telescope has discovered a glow surrounding the solar system Scientists are baffled by this glow that is equivalent to 10 fireflies The team theorizes it could be dust …
