Miraculous Nature: New Red Spot Appears on Jupiter

Miraculous Nature: New Red Spot Appears on Jupiter

In what's beginning to look like a case of planetary measles, a third red spot has appeared alongside its cousins — the Great Red Spot and Red Spot Jr. — in the turbulent Jovian atmosphere. This third red spot, which is a fraction of the size of the two other features, lies to the west of the Great Red Spot in the same latitude band of clouds. The visible-light images were taken on May 9 and 10 with Hubble's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2.

Doesn't it look like a masterpiece of Van Gogh's?
