    This is really interesting! I'm a little new to Jupiter studies, and I'm seeing a lot of submissions for the white spots and also some for the black dots. From what I've read it seems the white spots are possibly some kind of weather event, and it makes me curious about what the black dots could possibly be--perhaps related to the weather event, though there seem to also be black spots that are not surrounded by white spots.

    I am interested in finding out what causes these black dots and if photographed if they will be able to be identified.

    Are these black dots all vortices of jet streams where the clouds are funneling and we can see the dark beneath the clouds, or is it a different chemical composition of some kind?
