June 22, 2008: Jupiter grows new spots



This actually appeared as an APOD nearly a month ago, but if you haven't seen it before, it's new to you.

As we debate global warming, here's one piece of evidence that climate change may be coming from the Sun, not (entirely?) from man's activity on Earth: climate change is apparently happening on other planets. Mars has seen a half-degree C increase in the last 40 years. And now, apparently, the iconic big red spot on Jupiter has gained two buddies; the first in 2006 and the second only more recently. Apparently this is due to climate change on Jupiter.

I think this is the Vincent Van Gogh painting "Breakfast" that just sold for a gazillion bucks in Australia.

Jupiter's got new red spots on its face? It's not climate change, it's just Prom night.

Hey!! Jupiter is billions of years old. Give it a break. If YOU were in the sun for that long without sun block, you'd have spots on your surface too!

jupiter's got skin cancer.. perfect advertisment material for a new government health warning..

Any word on how the moon being made out of green cheese will impact our petroleum dependancy?



spudcon  Monday Jun 23 03:12 PM

My understanding is that both smaller red spots will eventually merge, and join the Great Red Spot, causing an outbreak of planetary acne across the planet's face. NASA has planned a mission to Jupiter to study this event with a new type of spacecraft, zoned interplanetary traveller series, or ZITS.

I'm confused.... I don't get it... what exactly am I supposed to buy now? Who am I supposed to judge harshly???


Clodfobble  Monday Jun 23 11:47 PM

Oh, same as before... this is just proof that we've screwed up Jupiter too.

Update: during the last week, the Large Red Spot et the Little Red Spot

I guess they decided, rather than have one big spot and one little tiny spot, they should get together and make one slightly bigger big spot.

Here's the anigif.

Planetary specialists around the world have been watching with baited breath as a cataclysmic encounter between Jupiter's Great Red Spot (GRS), Oval BA (Red, Jr.), and the newly discovered Little Red Spot (LRS) unfolded at the beginning of July.
