We should study this area to learn how the gas that this stripe is made of could stay in such a perfect stripe. Maybe it could be some unknown mass inside of Jupiter.

    Agreed. I'd love to learn how and why this stripe forms in such a uniform band on such a turbulent planet.

    Interesting thought.. I agree that this area could provide some important information. Especially in contrast to all other areas on Jupiter this one seems to be strangely "stable".

    A continuing series of images could provide valuable data over time; seems like a useful opportunity.

    This is the newly revived NTB (South component). Since the great outbreak initiated the revival of this belt last autumn, we have a unique opportunity to monitor its progress. JunoCam already got fine images at PJ-3 and PJ-4; let’s continue the series to see how the belt is changing.
