    These 'pearls' are not impact scars, they are long-lived anticyclonic storms. It will be nice to see one close up, and the image will also cover the interesting sector of jet stream (SSTBn) just to the north.

    These comet impact scars shouldn't be still visible. The atmosphere should have smeared all evidance of something hitting there in a very short time. Unless there is a solid surface? Then how could that be on a gas giant?

    Yeah nice choice and interesting feature. It is near of mark from impact of comet SL 9.

      I think examining this line of storms would be interesting, especially given how a similar group of small storms merged into the Little Red Spot.

      One of the string of pearls, definitely worth an image.
