This Voyager 1 picture of the great red spot shows a white oval with its "wake" of counter-rotating vortices. North is at the top and the distance from top to bottom is about 24,000 km. This enhanced color view emphasizes red and blue at the expense of green. Note the puffy features inside the GRS, and the "reverse-S" spirals inside both the GRS and the oval. The large white feature extending over the northern part of the GRS was observed to revolve about the GRS center with a period of 6…

NASA will fly closer to Jupiter's Great Red Spot tonight than ever before — here's what it could see - Jupiter's Great Red Spot is a storm about twice as wide as Earth. Using the Juno spacecraft, NASA will take its closest-ever photos of the giant storm on July 10. Business Insider simulated what the best single-frame image might look like. Jupiter's Great Red Spot is about twice as wide as Earth and has tumbled in the planet's atmosphere for at least 350 years. Despite astronomers' long-sta

The ruddy color of Jupiter's Great Red Spot is likely a product of simple chemicals being broken apart by sunlight in the planet's upper atmosphere, according to a new analysis of data from NASA's Cassini mission.

The Great Red Spot on Jupiter's face is secretly dull in color. But the swirling storm looks crimson thanks to something like a cosmic "sunburn." Gases in Jupiter's upper atmosphere turn reddish when they're hit with sunlight, scientists say.

The Great Red Spot of Jupiter SHRINKING ~ A storm that's been raging for over 300 years, it's three times the size of the entire Earth. NASA's recent Hubble Space Telescope observations confirm the Great Red Spot now is approximately 10,250 miles across, less than half the size of some historical measurements. Hubble's images over a span of decades show that the Great Red Spot is SHRINKING. NASA's Juno spacecraft is hurtling toward Jupiter now, due to reach the giant planet in July 2016…
