    What is the difference between the black dots near the North polar region and the larger white dots we see near the equator of Jupiter? What type of cloud or atmospheric interactions and compositions are occurring at this point? It seems very interesting like a giant swirling tornado.

      You bring up some excellent questions. I have noted a few of these black dots scattered across the cloud cover and am wondering if it is a particular gas causing this darker coloration or a combination of gasses.
