Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and it’s a gas giant with wild vortexes raging inside of it. One of those storms that caught the attention of most scientists and hobbyist astronomers is the Great Red Spot, which has been actually raging for centuries. However, according to a report, Jupiter’s Great Red Spot will be vanquished within the next few decades, and will remain nothing but a memory.

We have been able to see Jupiter clearly thanks to NASA’s $1 billion Juno spacecraft which orbits the gas giant and took wonderful photos of the planet, including its huge vortex back in July of last year. Those were the clearest and closest images we have ever received of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. Even the scientists were stunned by the details provided by the spacecraft.

The storm is actually wider than the whole planet Earth, and it started raging back in the 1600s, most likely. This sounds like a pretty long time, especially since the longest recorded storm on Earth lasted only 31 days – Hurricane John back in 1994.
