I think there should be an effort to try to understand what really makes a spot turn red. Is it really a queston of higher wind speed from the deep bringing some matterial from down there?

    How fast is it moving ?

    I like this one because it looks like a developing red spot

    This appears like it could be a developing red spot. I am interested to see how this develops.

    This seems like a critical formation on Jupiter to learn about the composition features of Jupiter, and why they react in a way to create these spots.

    It will be interesting to see the different red spots compared. What are the similarities? What is the composition?

    Before Oval BA spot disappear or grow smaller, we must do research on it extensively to reveal the mysteries behind its formation and composition.

    Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 impacted Jupiter in 2009. If this is a remnant of that Impact then I will be amazed to verify that the atmosphere shows evidence of that impact 8-years after the event... then again, it was no small impact... and the atmosphere of Jupiter is usually thought of as extremely active... so why would it still be there 8 years later?

      Has this red spot any connection with the large "nearby" red spot? Does the latitude play any role in their formation? I think we have to find an answer to these questions.

      I find this big orange spot very interesting!

      I guess the red color is caused by the hydrogen going from the metallic state into the liquid state causing oxydation of the metallic particals makeing them look red

      100% agreed. We need to take readings there.
