Dominating Jupiter’s cloudscape in this Juno spacecraft image is the third largest anticyclonic oval on the planet, its 3,700 miles long!

This is a long-lived storm named North North Temperate Little Red Spot 1 (NN-LRS-1) and has been tracked at least since 1993. An anticyclone is a weather phenomenon where winds around the storm flow in the direction opposite to that of the flow around a region of low pressure. The color varies between red and off-white (as it is now), but this JunoCam image shows that it still has a pale reddish core within the radius of maximum wind speeds.
