Storms of Neptune: The Dark Vortex

Hubble sees Neptune's mysterious shrinking storm,
NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, February 15, 2018.

"... first discovered in the late 1980s by NASA’s Voyager 2 spacecraft."

"Like Jupiter’s Great Red Spot (GRS), the storm swirls in an anti-cyclonic direction and is dredging up material from deep inside the ice giant planet’s atmosphere."

"Unlike Jupiter’s GRS, which has been visible for at least 200 years, Neptune’s dark vortices only last a few years."
