Virtual Spinning Globe of Jupiter – 2017

When one thinks of Jupiter, the Great Red Spot immediately comes to mind. The new images show that the large swirling red vortex continues to shrink and assume a more circular shape over time. The long axis of the storm is now 150 miles shorter than it was in 2014, which while faster than normal, is still consistent with long-term observations Hubble has been making over the years.
