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).
