Jupiter loses a belt May 20, 2010

Jaysis now there’s a headline that grabbed my attention as I scanned the news feeds this morning – Jupiter has apparently lost on of its equatorial belts …

The squiggly lines immediately to the left of the “Great Red Spot” are what we’re on about – the spot itself is actually a huge, raging storm three times bigger than Earth !  The stripe has disappeared (and reappeared) before but astronomers here on earth are at a loss to completely explain the phenomenon.

I must dust off the old telescope and see can I see anything of interest.
