I think there should be an effort to try to understand what really makes a spot turn red. Is it really a queston of higher wind speed from the deep bringing some matterial from down there?

    It would be very interesting to explore and take pictures of more of these types of spots.

  2. comment by Porvoo-13 on 2019-11-11 04:43 UT

    I think it would be interesting to explore anomalies like this in the cloud top and what determines their color, size, location, and shape.

  3. comment by Rubbia-47 on 2019-05-12 22:03 UT

    Also interested in what the would create a circular spot in this area, especially if it has changed color.

  4. comment by Aleksandrov-06 on 2019-05-12 17:38 UT

    What are these white spots on Jupiter. Why are they more prevalent on the Southern Hemisphere and seem more clustered together there? More imagery may help provide further insight into these questions

  5. comment by Osawa-51 on 2019-05-12 00:24 UT

    Wondering what these white spots could be on the planet, and why they're white as opposed to the red colors that's mainly shown on Jupiter.

  6. comment by Arcimboldo-83 on 2019-04-20 12:26 UT

    Has the spot's color change?

    I think it changes to white.

  7. comment by Volfango-64 on 2018-05-15 01:00 UT

    I wonder if these spots on Jupiter are decaying/growing versions of storms that could eventually become(or at one point was) something like the Great Red Spot.

  8. comment by Jen on 2018-05-14 06:48 UT

    I'm very curious about the spots. This looks like an interesting area.

  9. comment by Alisa on 2018-02-17 07:56 UT

    The spots of Jupiter are so interesting and have such a variety of colors. I hope we can understand these spots and continue to learn about them.

    How fast is it moving ?

  11. comment by Blumenthal-52 on 2017-05-15 02:00 UT

    I like this one because it looks like a developing red spot

  12. comment by Owensby-17 on 2017-05-15 02:00 UT

    This appears like it could be a developing red spot. I am interested to see how this develops.

      I hope it is!!!!

    • comment by JovianMan07 on 2018-02-14 17:00 UT

      I hope it is!!!!

    This seems like a critical formation on Jupiter to learn about the composition features of Jupiter, and why they react in a way to create these spots.

  14. comment by Denise_Selmo on 2017-02-03 11:57 UT

    It will be interesting to see the different red spots compared. What are the similarities? What is the composition?

  15. comment by Bhavana_Vashisht on 2017-01-23 08:20 UT

    Before Oval BA spot disappear or grow smaller, we must do research on it extensively to reveal the mysteries behind its formation and composition.

    Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 impacted Jupiter in 2009. If this is a remnant of that Impact then I will be amazed to verify that the atmosphere shows evidence of that impact 8-years after the event... then again, it was no small impact... and the atmosphere of Jupiter is usually thought of as extremely active... so why would it still be there 8 years later?

    • comment by Flora on 2017-01-19 20:39 UT

      Has this red spot any connection with the large "nearby" red spot? Does the latitude play any role in their formation? I think we have to find an answer to these questions.

    • comment by bzznzo on 2016-07-13 16:14 UT

      I find this big orange spot very interesting!

    • comment by Shoyo-21 on 2016-07-13 12:45 UT

      I guess the red color is caused by the hydrogen going from the metallic state into the liquid state causing oxydation of the metallic particals makeing them look red

    • comment by Phyleus-26 on 2016-07-04 13:43 UT

      100% agreed. We need to take readings there.
