The strange storms on Jupiter that a NASA satellite spotted back in 2017 have caught the attention of experts.

The recognisable Great Red Spot on Jupiter is actually an anticyclone, a collection of swirling storm clouds.
And it's just one of numerous storms that have hit the gas giant. There are nine cyclones at Jupiter's north pole.
a single huge storm flanked by eight lesser ones that NASA's Juno satellite first observed in 2017,
which travels around the planet. Why has this configuration been consistent for the past few years?
That question was investigated in a paper published in Nature Astronomy.
