IF ONLY WE'D ADOPTED KYOTO....:
Jupiter's smaller spot getting redder (AP, 10/11/06)
The little brother to the Great Red Spot on Jupiter is getting redder and stronger.
Both spots are actually fierce storms in Jupiter's atmosphere. While the Great Red Spot -- at three times the size of Earth -- is much more noticeable, strange things are happening to the smaller spot.
Just a little more than a year ago, the Earth-sized spot was a pale white. Now it matches the reddish hue of its bigger sibling and boasts 400 mile per hour winds, according to new data from the Hubble Space Telescope.
If Al Gore were president those spots would have cleared up by now. Posted by Orrin Judd at October 12, 2006 5:44 PM
