The Great Red Spot of Jupiter SHRINKING ~ A storm that's been raging for over 300 years, it's three times the size of the entire Earth. NASA's recent Hubble Space Telescope observations confirm the Great Red Spot now is approximately 10,250 miles across, less than half the size of some historical measurements. Hubble's images over a span of decades show that the Great Red Spot is SHRINKING.  NASA's Juno spacecraft is hurtling toward Jupiter now, due to reach the giant planet in July 2016…

“The Great Red Spot is basically the largest storm in the entire solar system," says Scott Bolton, Juno's principal investigator.

Jupiter's Great Red Spot. The Great Red Spot is a great anti-cyclonic (high pressure) storm akin to a hurricane on Earth, but it is enormous (three Earths would fit within its boundaries) and it has persisted for at least the 400 years that humans have observed it through telescopes. Since it is anti-cyclonic in Jupiter's Southern hemisphere, the rotation is counterclockwise, with a period of about 6 days. (A hurricane in Earth's Southern hemisphere rotates clockwise.)

The ruddy color of Jupiter's Great Red Spot is likely a product of simple chemicals being broken apart by sunlight in the planet's upper atmosphere, according to a new analysis of data from NASA's Cassini mission.

The Great Red Spot on Jupiter's face is secretly dull in color. But the swirling storm looks crimson thanks to something like a cosmic "sunburn." Gases in Jupiter's upper atmosphere turn reddish when they're hit with sunlight, scientists say.
