The Biggest Storm You Can See: The Big Red Stain

There's a lot to say about Jupiter, a lot of information to write about. But we will touch on the Great Red Stain, which has a very complex structure and still works on the scientists working on Jupiter, the naughty child of the Solar System.
The Great Red Stain was first observed by Robert Hook in 1664. Hook was one of the most successful scientists of the 17th century, and his work has shed light on research that will span centuries. Hook, which enables the discovery of many innovations in the field of science and makes researches about the craters of the Moon, is also one of the first observers of the rings of Saturn.
It is the largest of the storms that are frequently encountered on planets such as the Great Red Spot and Jupiter, some of which last for hours and some for years. It can even be viewed and photographed from the earth with telescopes used by amateur astronomers.

What makes it interesting is that (as we have observed) it has been going on for nearly 400 years. The first serious research on the huge storm, whose average temperature was measured as -160 degrees, dates back to the 19th century. Jupiter's Great Red Spot is so large with its diameter reaching 40 thousand km that it can contain three Earths. Below you can see a photo montage by artist Michael Carroll comparing the World and the Great Red Spot.
The unusual stain of Jupiter is antisyclone, unlike storms on Earth. So the storm is under high pressure. To the west of the prevailing winds to the north of the stain; It was observed that it was blowing towards the east in the south.

The giant speck of Jupiter, which has a very complex structure, rotates counterclockwise and is 22 degrees south of the equator of the planet. It has also been observed that the stain, which is mostly brown and red, turns pink from time to time. Although discussions continue, we still don't know what exactly gave the Big Red Stain its color. The robot spacecraft Juno, which has reached Jupiter in the past years, will also conduct research on Jupiter's mysterious storm and help increase our knowledge.
The Great Red Stain also has a younger brother. As you can guess the name, scientists call this formation Little White Stain.

Don't be fooled by the name, it's actually not that small. It is a big stain that can fit the Earth. As seen in the photograph taken by Voyager 1 on March 1, 1979; Little White Stain continues to chase her brother. The Little White Stain, which initially appeared as a white formation, is thought to be a long-term formation like its older brother.

Research in recent years shows that the Great Red Spot is getting smaller day by day. Still, astronomers cannot predict when the glorious storm, which has become the symbol of Jupiter, will disappear.

The stain is very likely to disappear, but we cannot think of a Jupiter without the Great Red Stain. Don't disappear, big storm! You are so beautiful ..
