Explanation: Neptune rotates once on its axis in about 16 hours. So, spaced about 4 hours apart these... images of the solar system's most distant gas giant cover one Neptune day. Recorded by the Hubble Space Telescope in late June they combine exposures made with visible and near-infrared filters to show high-altitude clouds composed of methane ice crystals against the planet's normally blue cloud tops. Because Neptune's axis of rotation is tilted to its orbital plane by 29 degrees, compared to Earth's 23.5 degrees, Neptune experiences seasons analogous to Earth's. As early summer comes to Neptune's southern hemisphere and winter to the north, Hubble observations have shown cloud activity shifting to the northern hemisphere...


These beautiful near-infrared enhanced images of Neptune's atmospheric plasma vortices presents the nonlinear distribution pattern that has also been identified in the other gas planets, especially Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. The unmistakable nonlinear vortex patterns show a correlation with the quantum quadratic formula for infrasound resonance, [ zn+1 = zn2 ], and are also quite evident in the atmospheres of Saturn's moons Enceladus and Titan.

Contrary to the assumptions provided by NASA above, the heat signatures of the many vortices observed as pink circles in near-infrared are not caused by methane crystals, but are counter-rotating plasma storms generated by focused infrasound resonance within the atmosphere of Neptune.

This infrasound resonance pattern has also been observed for short periods on Earth and dictates the geopositions of the pyramids of the world, with the Orion pyramids of Giza, Egypt at the centerpoint. The oncoming solar-system-wide magnetic reversal of December 22, 2012 may influence the atmospheric cloud patterns of Earth to become similar to those of Titan, with patterns of glowing plasma forming in the skies - seen as brilliant luminous spots like standing aurora.
