You now increase the power and zoom in on Jupiter:
You can see bands of clouds and Jupiter's Great Red Spot only it doesn't look very red your eye
is not too sensitive to colors for dimly lit objects. The Great Red Spot is a gigantic (twice the size of Earth) hurricane weather system
that has existed for at least 300 years with winds of about 250 miles per hour (400 kilometers per hour).
The above is brought to you by Jupiter Scientific,
an organization devoted to the promotion of
science through books, the internet
and other means of communication.
