Jupiter's annual portrait is a beaut

The Hubble Space Telescope obtained this global map of Jupiter by taking photos every orbit for almost 10 hours, the time it takes the planet to rotate once.
Scientists say that color of Jupiter, as well as their change allow to determine the processes taking place in a stormy atmosphere.
Vivid colors and swirling clouds are highlighted in the new Jupiter image, as well as a closeup look at its atmosphere.
The bands are created by differences in the thickness and height of the ammonia ice clouds.
Regardless, the Jupiter storm is still large enough to swallow our planet whole. The lighter bands rise the highest, while thicker clouds represent the darker ribbons in the band.
"The goal is to fill in gaps in the archive of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune images because, some years, there were no successful proposals to use Hubble to observe individual planets", Wong said.
According to NASA, the Great Red Spot is "anchored in roiling atmosphere" that receives heat from deep inside of the planet.
Jupiter's cloud bands are confined by jet streams that move in opposite directions at different latitudes.
It is shaped like a wedding cake, whose upper haze layer extends more than 3 miles (5 km) higher than clouds in other areas. Much smaller storms appear on Jupiter as white or brown ovals that can last as little as a few hours or stretch on for centuries.
The most prominent feature displayed in the new portrait is the Great Red Spot (GRS) - an enormous storm that has been churning across the surface of the Jovian planet for at least the past 150 years.
The Great Red Spot itself churns along counterclockwise between two cloud bands, with each band moving in opposite directions above and below the hurricane.
NASA has released a brand new image from The Hubble Space Telescope showcasing what is now the best image we now have of the giant planet Jupiter.
"The red band above and to the right (northeast) of the Great Red Spot contains clouds moving westward and around the north of the giant tempest".
The different concentrations are separated by fast wind speeds that can reach up to 650 kph.
