Learn about the Great Red Spot and other storms on Jupiter in this video adapted from NASA. Storms on Earth dissipate quickly compared to storms on Jupiter, which can last for centuries. This video presents the relative sizes of a large hurricane on Earth and Jupiter's Great Red Spot (GRS), the largest storm in the solar system, and explores how a changing climate may be altering storm activity on Jupiter. The video shows satellite images of some of Jupiter's recent storms: three white ovals (which merged together in 2006 to form a new red spot known as Red Spot Junior) and another red spot in 2008 that interacted with the GRS.
