Jupiter - Region from the Great Red Spot to the South Pole
[For trouble viewing the images/movies on this page, go here]
This picture shows a region of the southern hemisphere extending from the Great Red Spot to the south pole. The white oval is seen beneath the Great Red Spot, and several small scale spots are visible farther to the south. Some of these organized cloud spots have similar morphologies, such as anticyclonic rotations and cyclonic regions to their west. The presence of the white oval causes the streamlines of the flow to bunch up between it and the Great Red Spot.

The Voyager Project is managed for NASA by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
