Lower Great Red Spot Atmospheric Flow [ID: 159]

As is visible in an earlier NASA animation of atmospheric flow on Jupiter (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/images/content/388629main_jupiter_skyflat.gif), a few small dark spots can be seen disappearing as they pass below the Great Red Spot. It would be very interesting to observe these spots in greater detail to see whether they are disappearing below the upper layers, or into the GRS itself. Or, perhaps they may just be dissipating?

    A closer photograph of this region may show how the red spot effects the layers and clouds around it. Could be a really interesting spot for further investigation.

    I wonder what the makeup of this atmospheric location is.

    The atmosphere might take damage from the storm
