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

    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?

    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.
