Red spot Junior meets The Great Red Spot on Jupiter

Don’t forget to point your telescope toward Jupiter in the latter part of July (originally July 4). Scientists tell us that the fairly new Red Spot “Junior” on Jupiter is catching up to the Great Red Spot and that the two will interact.

Nobody really knows what will happen but the last I heard is that “Junior” will very likely change color from red to white.

Talk about your perfect storm… Each of those spots is mulitiple times the size of our entire planet!!
