Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system, at roughly 10 times the size of the Earth. If you look at an image of Jupiter, you can’t miss a prominent red spot on its surface. This spot is actually a storm so large the entire Earth could fit inside of it three times over. It has wind speeds of up to 430 km/h, more than 100 km/h than Earth’s most intense recorded category 5 hurricane: the recent hurricane Patricia off the coast of Mexico. The raging storm has been reported as long as 350 years ago and there seems to be no end in sight.
