Clyde’s Spot

Clyde’s Spot is the Jupiter’s feature discovered last year by an amateur astronomer Clyde Foster. This oval shaped feature is found close to the giant planet’s famous “Great Red Spot”. This feature is a plume of cloud material erupting above the cloud layers of the Jovian atmosphere. Recently, the Juno Spacecraft’s JunoCam instrument found that this spot is drifting away from its original location and has a different shape than when it was first captured last year.
