Hubble Space Telescope Turned Toward Jupiter Last Month, Capturing Colorful Views Of Giant Planet And Its Icy Moon Europa, More Than 400 Million Miles From Earth. Images reveal new storm brewing on Jupiter, giving scientists enticing snapshot of gas giants ' ever-changing weather. Racing around planet at 350 miles per hour per hour, fresh storm is located on upper left part of Jupiter in Hubble views. Storm Appeared On Aug. 18, Week Before Hubbles Look At Jupiter. Two more storms appeared later at same latitude. Jupiter was in position 406 million miles from Earth when Hubble Space Telescope observed planet. Hubble, joint project between NASA and European Space Agency, takes pictures of solar systems outer planets every year to look for changes in their storms, winds, and clouds, according to NASA. Timing Of Hubbles ' Aug. 25 Observations Was Perfect To Study Jupiters Newest Storm System. NASA says storms commonly form in same latitude band on Jupiter every six years or so. Trailing behind plume are small, rounded features with complex red, white, and blue colors in Hubbles ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared light image, NASA said in release accompanying images. Such discrete features typically dissipate on Jupiter, leaving behind only changes in cloud colors and speeds, but similar storm on Saturn lead to long-lasting vortex. Differences in aftermaths of Jupiter and Saturn storms may be related to contrasting water abundances in their atmospheres, since water vapor may govern massive amount of store-up energy that can be released by these storm eruptions, NASA say. Jupiters famous Great Red Spot also clearly visible in Hubbles ' newest images. Cyclone span 9 800 miles across, big to fit Earth inside, but has been steadily shrinking in telescopic observations dating back to 1930, NASA say. Scientists do know why Great Red Spot is shrinking. Companion Storm Just South Of Great Red Spot Is Also Exhibiting Some Changes In Hubbles ' Latest Observations. Smaller Cyclone, Named Oval BA Or Red Spot Jr., Appear Red When It Appeared On Jupiter In 2006. But its color later to white. Oval BA feature now appear be darkening, according to NASA. This could hint that Spot Jr. Is on its way to turning to color more similar to its cousin once again, NASA say. Hubble images show that Jupiter is clearing out its higher altitude white clouds, especially along planet's equator, where orangish hydrocarbon smog wraps around it, NASA say. Europa, one of Jupiters four largest moons, appeared to left of planet in Hubbles observation from Aug. 25. Europas global ice shell cover bury ocean may harbor ingredients for life. NASAs Juno Mission Is Currently Orbiting Jupiter, Studying Gas Giants Atmosphere And Internal Structure. Two more robotic missions Jupiter currently in development.
