It shows a variety of colors and shapes, that might prove useful in understanding the currents and winds on Jupiter's surface.

    The drastic color change of this region is why it's a point of interest for me, why is this the only region of Jupiter with this swirling pattern and greenish color? Is this an indication of storm activity?

    This is such a different color from the other regions of Jupiter. I wonder what's going on there.

    I'm curious to know what is giving these swirling wind currents a greenish hue in this area. Why does it only seem to occur in that region of Jupiter?
