A Better Picture of Jupiter for Today

The atmospheric conditions have improved dramitically since our earlier shot of Jupiter this morning.

So we are showing a much more detailed picture of Jupiter now with some interesting points.

If you look at the Northern Equatorial Belt, you will see a white spot below it just right of the center of Jupiter. This is a large anticyclonic storm similar to the Great Red Spot, however it is smaller ……… and the smaller anticylonic storms tend to be white.

As you can see, the Southern Equatorial Belt has still not re-appeared this year and it is pretty much certain that we will not see the SEB this year.
