Jupiter turns out to have three magnetic poles
We, as inhabitants of the Earth are accustomed to the fact that the earth has only two magnetic poles, North and South. Similar thought as well, and other planets at the two poles, it would have been so continue, but at some stage observations at Jupiter were second magnetic pole on the South side. Observe the magnetic lines from the surface of the Earth is difficult, Jupiter is still very far away, but if the close removal, everything can be seen to the smallest detail.
In 2016, in the area of Jupiter was a space probe "Juno", this automatic ship was sent to Jupiter only because humanity has accumulated a lot of questions on the physics of this cosmic body. The probe "Juno" allowed to see the magnetic field of the gas giant in all colors. Data on Earth was sent a great many, and recently scientists from Harvard University, announced new discoveries in this direction. One of discoveries especially it turned out very interesting and as least not habitual. Many may be surprised, but Jupiter has three magnetic poles, two South poles and one North pole.
Magnetic lines on Jupiter are located and directed somewhat differently, the magnetic field of the gas planet is largely different from the usual terrestrial type. In the photo, you can compare two magnetic fields and reveal a clear difference in the location of the power lines. Probably neither of which is there is no special, it is two different planets, so things could be different. In the near approximation, the South pole looks quite normal, with the Southern hemisphere like everything is clear and understandable, the pole is just at the point of the axis of rotation.
As for the Northern hemisphere, there is not so ordinary, there is a continuous vortex on the entire polar cap, but the pole there is also one. There is also the South pole two, it is close to the equator. This anomaly is visible only because Jupiter is at the stage of restructuring its internal dynamics. The second magnetic pole near the equator is just a big anomaly and a temporary phenomenon. This can only be the case if the magnetic field of Jupiter in its physics is not similar to what scientists know about the earth`s version.
In the depths of Jupiter until it is clear that is, there may be metallic hydrogen mixed rock and ice as it is unclear circulates.. This circulation causes the appearance of such a force field and wandering, another magnetic field near the equator. To learn a little more about the magnetic field of Jupiter you need to wait until 2021, when the probe "Juno" will conduct a full scan and provide additional data that will help to understand the features of the magnetic field of Jupiter.
