Submission + - The shrinking Giant Red Spot of Jupiter (

schwit1 writes: Jupiter's trademark Great Red Spot — a swirling storm feature larger than Earth — is shrinking. This downsizing, which is changing the shape of the spot from an oval into a circle, has been known about since the 1930s, but now these striking new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope images capture the spot at a smaller size than ever before.

How soon until it's blamed on climate disruption or the sequester?
