What causes the red spot on Jupiter?

    The red spot on Jupiter is actually a giant storm! However, there isn’t much known about why it is colored red, whether it be phenomena with the elements that are stuck in the storm such as red phosphorus, red organic material, or the makeup of Jupiter itself. What is known is that on occasion the “Great Red Spot” can vanish–blending in with Jupiter and appearing in colors of white or even pink.

    It is a result of the Coriolis Effect, causing wind currents in cyclical motions. It’s basically a hurricane big enough that it could swallow earth whole!
