Within the Wake of the Great Red Dot [ID: 156]

This area looks to be very turbulent, because of the Great Red Dot, and has promise to be extremely beautiful due to said turbulence.

    The clouds around the Red Dot must be super turbulent and active! I'd be curious to know why it isn't a part of the big storm and what divides the Red Dot from other areas such as this one.

    You can see multiple points being drawn into the wake. This would be interesting to see closer.

    I wonder what causes the apparent border between the Great Red Dot and the other clouds around it?

    The turbulence by The Great Red Spot would be really neat to see

    That would be interesting to see The Great Red Spot that close, its color difference and how it affects the gases around it.

    I chose this area instead of the eye of the storm because closely viewing edges of the Great Red Dot could point to clues about how the atmospheric gases interact or evolve to become part of this feature of Jupiter. It would be interesting to also see the shape that the gases take in a closer manner, will they fan from the eye or become more tornado-like?

    I agree that this area would be very beautiful! It would give us a feel of the aftermath of the storm. Perhaps we could see the red spot effects the gases around it: maybe it changes their composition!

    This spot is very cool as it would be interesting to see the brink of the Great Red Spot up close. I would like to see the spot straight on to show the color difference, as well as maybe from a lower angle.

    Naturally we are drawn to areas that stand out such at the great red bot on the surface of Jupiter. I would love to see more detail in this particular area so I can visualize it.

    I am mostly interested in the turbulence that occurs behind the red spot and what sorts of things could form behind the storm.

  12. comment by echantelle on 2017-05-13 01:04 UT

    I also agree that this area is probably very turbulent. What causes the red coloration of the dot? Does anyone know what gas(es) it might be composed of?

  13. comment by Holvorcem-26 on 2017-05-08 14:46 UT

    Agreed. Looks like some scribbling gales are hitting up against it. It's interesting how the force of the storm seems to deflect the incoming tubrulence. I bet the border between the scribbles and the dot is total pandemonium.

    Afra-21 is correct in the assumptions that this area is extraordinarily turbulent. It looks, visually, like an area in which white spots form and (by some mechanism) migrate to the other belts and zones.

    I agree with you and many others

  17. comment by Miyamoto-47 on 2016-07-11 01:39 UT

    Cool choice.
