This point is interesting to me because it is a vortex within the belts of the planet. I personally believe that their could be a lot of interesting science to come out of this vortex in the atmosphere. First, it appears to be a different chemical make up than the surrounding belt and appears to rotate (looked at through my 10 inch telescope) I wonder how cloud formations like these form between the belts of Jupiter. I named this point Murdak after what the Babylonians called Jupiter. I really hope that my object will get to be observed by Juno's camera. I also hope that more information about the processes in which these storms are made possible will be uncovered.
