Just as the Hubble deep field was an empty dark square before we gazed upon it, so too must we look at seemingly blank and featureless areas of Jupiter for the odd chance that it contains unexpected small features of scientific interest.

    I actually agree with the Plotino's logic. Granted, not all of our time should be dedicated to the featureless regions, but indeed some of it should be directed there. Even if there's nothing of critical interest, we'll still answer the question of: is there something there? Science is all about answering questions, after all!

    Seems like this would be a lower priority if you have actual features of interest to image, vice the 'maybe something's there'. That would be for later passes after primary objectives were satisfied right?

    I wonder what would come up in a photograph of this region.
