There have been very few photos taken of the south pole of Jupiter; is is similar to the picture just released f the north pole, or is it significantly different in structure such as Saturn's hexagon?

    This makes a lot of sense to me, it will likely be a very long time before we have another chance to photograph this area.

    Cannot easily see this section of the planet from a telescope near Earth so might as well get a good image while you can.

    The recent picture of the south pole shows a definite blue color. Are there blue clouds or blue snow and what is its composition? Why is the blue color different from the rest of the planet?
