In 1979, passing Voyager 1 spacecraft first discovered that the biggest planet of our solar system Jupiter has rings. But their origin was a mystery. Data from the NASA’s Galileo spacecraft that orbited Jupiter from 1995 to 2003 later confirmed that these rings were created by meteoroid impacts on small nearby moons.

33 years later, Voyager 1 spacecraft is making its own voyage of discovery on the edge of the solar system. When searching for the accurate explanation it’s been mentioned as an example that a small meteoroid strikes tiny Adrastea, for which it will bore into the moon, vaporise and explode dirt and dust off into a Jovian (Jovian is the adjectival form of the planet Jupiter) orbit. The above picture is an eclipse of the sun by Jupiter. It was viewed from Galileo. There was enormous small dust particles in Jupiter’s atmosphere. The dust particles composed rings and this rings can be seen by reflected sunlight.

Be noted that the system is mainly composed of dust – caused by the collisions of meteorites on Jupiter’s moons, and dust escaping from one of Jupiter’s 60-plus moons. The rings might be as old as Jupiter.
