A 'hot spot' area of Jupiter's equator

The Galileo spacecraft has sent back data showing that Jupiter, like the Earth, has wet and dry areas like the desert and tropic climates, scientists announced on June 5, 1997, in Pasadena, Calif. These photographic mosaics from NASA's Galileo spacecraft show true and false color of a "hot spot" area of Jupiter's equatorial region. Galileo is the first spacecraft to distinguish cloud layers on Jupiter.
