There are two spots which seem to be two storms about to collide with each other nearby a cloud phase transition. Storm collisions should give insight on rheology dynamics of the Jovian atmosphere.

    I feel that if there was a clearer picture of this storm collision then we would have more insight into the workings of the atmosphere.

    Photographing the collision of two storm systems may potentially offer valuable insight into the atmospheric properties of Jovian planets as well as weather patterns on Jovian planets.
