Resum
A rare red cyclone visible on Jupiter in 1994 and 1995 falls in a class of vortices that are intensely colored, yet low altitude, unlike the Great Red Spot (GRS). Dynamical modeling indicates that the presence of nearby anticyclones both aids in formation and lead to the destruction of the cyclone. A study of absolute spectral reflectance from Hubble Space Telescope imaging data shows that GRS is not typically the "reddest" region of the planet. Rather, transient red cyclones and the reddest par...
