Observation – Jupiter

Jupiter is a gas planet that is the largest in the solar system. Its great red spot is an anticyclone three times the size of the Earth. Violent winds gusting at more than 500 km/h blow across its surface. Here is how Louis Moinet described it in 1848: “Jupiter shows us its alternately light and dark bands.”
