    I would very much like to see photos of the white pearl and am interested in the atmospheric composition. -Elisa, OSU

    I would be interested in the composition of the white pearl as well as that of other white pearls on Jupiter and how they compare chemically to the great red spot and what accounts for their difference in color and structure.

    It would be interesting to measure the composition of this pearl and compare it to others like it and note the positions they are in.

    There seems to be a lot of pictures of a "white pearl", I'm curious to know if anyone has ever counted them at a certain time.

    I feel these White storms may be a chemical composition of water vapor

    I wonder what the differences in the chemical composition of the pearl storm are in comparison to the red spot?

    This is cool I like the name

    I am curious what the composition of the Whirl of a Pearl is. Does it move in relation to the Big Red Dot?

    I would like to see a close up of this spot. It seems to be in a long row of several, is it a storm? Is there something unique about this particular belt that makes it so storm heavy, if that's the case?

    Why is it white?

    Where to find the picture of this white spot?

    Is the Whirl of Pearls composition gas or crater made from asteroids ...meteorites?

    I like this spot because it shows a pearl and a belt/zone transition.
