Jupiter’s red spot shrinks

The Great Red Spot on Jupiter has shrunk.

The area was once big enough to hold three Earths, however, the latest imagery from NASA shows it only has room for one.

The Great Red Spot is currently a rich red color, with its core and outermost band appearing deeper red. But it has been shrinking for the last 100 years.

In other news, an enormous new storm has appeared on Jupiter, wider than the gas giant’s infamous Great Red Spot.

The bright white plume appeared on August 18, astronomers say, and they’ve managed to get a crisp picture of it using the Hubble Space Telescope. 

The new storm, which appears in two distinct parts, is travelling around the planet at 560km/h.
