It appears to be distinct from the rest of the region it is in, perhaps it is a storm feature

    Even though this is not the best possible area in terms of interesting images it does give me an idea. I heard somewhere that this probe's signal might be blocked if it goes under certain clouds. However, in the turbulent areas one might find breaks in the clouds. Some of the strong storms might even have an calm eye of sorts that the probe could lower into. If there is even the slightest chance of getting an image below the cloud tops as the probe descends, finding a break in those clouds may be the best option. I envision it lowering into the eye of the red spot in its final moments, but that is just one idea. Any turbulent spot might work. A lot of people want to know what those clouds look like up close. It would be quite something to see that.

      Sir, I believe that the point you suggested is by no means exceptional. That is why I urge people here not to vote for it.
