The calm in the center of the Great Red Spot of Jupiter:

The great Red Spot of Jupiter has long been intrigued by astronomers, with its gigantic storms and hurricane force winds.

Now the researchers have revealed what really happens inside the storm and found that their center is strangely quiet.

While winds reach 450 mph at their limit, in the center, they are only 25 mph, researchers say.

The huge and oval whirlpool that measures 20,000 km is perhaps one of the most popular atmospheric phenomena of the solar system.

However, until now, astronomers did not understand what they really have inside.

The study, conducted by an international team of researchers led by Agustín Sánchez-Lavega, professor of Physics at the University of the Basque Country, found a "rich diversity" of clouds within the Great Red Spot.

According to the new study, published in the astronomical newspaper, it contains clusters of cluster storms produced by the condensation of ammonia vapor, narrow gravity waves similar to those that form on the Earth when the wind blows in the summits of the mountains.

The large red spot of Jupiter is a giant oval of red Jupiter clouds in the southern hemisphere that is compared in the opposite direction to the hollow in the oval perimeter.

However, the calm reigns in its center where the clouds move rotating in the opposite direction at maximum speeds of only 25 km / h.

"These phenomena are confined to a thin layer of only 50 km thick, which represents the roof of the clouds of the place, while in the interior the place probably drops to a couple of hundred kilometers," researchers say.

They used the images taken by JunoCam during their graft graft through the Great Red Spot.

These and other aspects of this phenomenon are the focus of the research that the Juno mission will carry out in the coming years.

The Great Red Spot, first observed for sure 150 years ago, appears through the telescope due to its reddish color against white, yellow and ocher clouds that contrast with the rest of the planet.

In spite of the numerous studies realized on the storm, its nature supposes an enormous challenge for the planetary meteorologists.

WHAT IS JUPITER'S LARGE RED?

The Great Red Spot of Jupiter is a giant oval of red clouds in the southern hemisphere of Jupiter that is compared in the opposite direction to the hollow in the oval perimeter.

The biggest storm in the solar system appears as a deep red orbit surrounded by layers of pale yellow, orange and white.

Trapped between two jet streams, the Great Red Spot is an anticyclone spinning around a center of high atmospheric pressure that makes it rotate in the opposite direction to the hurricanes of the Earth.

Winds in the storm were measured at several hundreds of kilometers per hour, with wind storms higher than any storm on Earth, NASA astronomers said.

At the end of 1800 it is estimated that it was approximately 35,000 miles (about 56,000 km) in diameter, enough for four lands to be adjusted.

Measuring 10,000 miles (16,000 kilometers) wide from April 3, 2017, the Great Red Spot is 1.3 times wider than Earth and is gradually declining over time.
