It shows a variety of colors and shapes, that might prove useful in understanding the currents and winds on Jupiter's surface.

    I would really like to see a more detailed picture of this area because I would really like to see what is causing the contrast in that area since not many other places on the planet have such a dramatic change like that.

    The drastic color change of this region is why it's a point of interest for me, why is this the only region of Jupiter with this swirling pattern and greenish color? Is this an indication of storm activity?

    This is such a different color from the other regions of Jupiter. I wonder what's going on there.
