Neptune’s shrinking storm watched by Hubble


Hubble is taking amazing pictures of the outer planets, images that can only be beaten with close range spacecraft (See below). These images are showing that over the years since Voyages flyby the Great Dark Spot that it photographed is almost gone.

The reason for this shrinking isn’t clear but it gives us a clue to how the outer planets behave and how the sun and their own makeup can affect these great storms.

  1. The wonders of our Solar System.
    Begs the question, will there be another one in a relatively short time? Part of Neptune’s cycle?
