Jupiter's Spots Disappear Amid Major Climate Change
Marcus says the demise of still more spots over the next seven years will mark the end of a newly proposed, 70-year climate cycle.
During this time, Jupiter's equatorial region will warm up a whopping 18 degrees Fahrenheit (10 Celsius) and the planet will grow cooler near the poles. Then the stage will be set, as in 1939, for another batch of white ovals to dramatically appear by 2014.
