The James Webb Space Telescope spies strange shapes above Jupiter’s Great Red Spot

Using the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), astronomers have found previously unseen structures and activity in Jupiter’s atmosphere above the Great Red Spot. These strange features appear to be caused by powerful atmospheric gravity waves.

The Great Red Spot is the largest storm in the solar system, twice the size of Earth, and is believed to have raged for at least 300 years, according to NASA. The Great Red Spot’s winds blow about 270 to 425 miles per hour (430 to 680 kilometers per hour), up to 3.5 times faster than a tornado here on Earth.
