black band [ID: 89]

Coordinates : -18.576° latitude , 44.784° longitude

The band seems to be hooked around the Great Red Spot that undoubtedly effects the winds of Jupiter and probably causes the hook. Observing this point could give insight on how the Great red spot affects Jupiter's winds and how similar storms affect the wind of other atmospheres that are similar to Jupiter's atmospheres.

    The black band definitely looks like an outline of something perhaps even brighter than the great red spot!

    Crabtree-12 I agree that it looks like eyeliner for the Great Red Spot! I also wonder if it is caused by or causing the red spot.

    This band seems different than any other line of clouds, to me. I'm curious to see if there's any particular reason for that.
