Jupiter's New Spot.

Hubble Space Telescope took a picture of a new red spot in Jupiter, dubbed "Red Spot Jr.":

"Red Spot Jr." as it is being called, formed after three white oval-shaped storms—two of which were at least 90 years old—merged between 1998 and 2000.

A similar merger took place centuries ago and formed the bigger and legendary Great Red Spot, a storm twice as big as Earth and almost 300 years old.

Scientists are blaming increasing temperature on the planet, a Jupiter "global warming".
