Jupiter - G2V comparison

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Took a spectrum of Jupiter the other night and thought it would be interesting to overlay a G2V reference spectrum (like our Sun`s) which I suppose goes some way to showing the planet shines by reflected light from the sun. Balmer lines clearly seen.


A few differences can be seen I think such as the Methane absorption line around 6200 angst. Not quite sure what the three strong absorption lines at the blue end are ?.
