Nifty, i wonder who lives there ??? Imagine, if you will (ok i know this may sound insane) imagine if jupiter has planets hiding in the gas, and the spots(red and black) were the results of their gravitational pull on the gases surrounding it. Those spots are twice the size of earth

Man i need coffee:morning:
