This is the location of the "5-micron hotspots" and Juno will be flying over this region on PJ4. These haven't been imaged up close since the days of the Galileo Mission...

    Is there a reason why this area is a darker color compared to the surrounding areas?

    This area is really cool because it stands out compared to its entire surrounding area. I also wonder why it is a hot spot since I have always related heat with lighter and more warm colors. This spot is dark and seems to be like a cool blue.

    The dark spot appears to be one of two within that region, unless the other darker spot to the left of it is something else. I would have assumed it to be a lighter region not darker.
