Great Red Spot

The Great Red Spot is a storm system on the planet Jupiter. It is the most conspicuous feature of the planetís visible cloud surface. It is an anticyclonic circulation system, a high pressure center in the Jupiterís southern hemisphere. It has been raging for about 150 years. The size of its vortex is bigger than that of the Earth.
A new finding by the Hubble Space Telescope revealed that the speed of the Great Red Spot is accelerating. The average wind speed within the boundaries of the storm has increased by up to 8 per cent from 2009 to 2020.
