Most storms in the North Equatorial Belt usually last a year or so before dissipating. However, White Spot Z has persisted in this area since 1997. We should take a look at it to see if there's something unique about White Spot Z or if its long lifespan is just a fluke.

    These latitudes are currently very disrupted from both the NTBs upheaval and new outbreaks of white ‘rifts’ (convective storms) in the NEB. Although white spot Z itself may be out of view at Perijove-4, the whole region is interesting: Can JunoCam show where the turbulence is spreading from?

    I agree with Brookebowers-08, also the spot is on the boundary between zone and belt and should reveal interesting results.

    I've loved science when I saw it on tv as a child with my dad & always will be intrigued by it. Thanks to NASA & Teachers .
