Explanation: What will become of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot? Gas giant Jupiter is the solar system’s largest world with about 320 times the mass of planet Earth. Jupiter is home to one of the largest and longest lasting storm systems known, the Great Red Spot (GRS), visible to the left. The GRS is so large it could swallow Earth, although it has been shrinking. Comparison with historical notes indicate that the storm spans only about one third of the exposed surface area it had 150 years ago. NASA’s Outer Planets Atmospheres Legacy (OPAL) program has been monitoring the storm more recently using the Hubble Space Telescope. The featured Hubble OPAL image shows Jupiter as it appeared in 2016, processed in a way that makes red hues appear quite vibrant. Modern GRS data indicate that the storm continues to constrict its surface area, but is also becoming slightly taller, vertically. No one knows the future of the GRS, including the possibility that if the shrinking trend continues, the GRS might one day even do what smaller spots on Jupiter have done — disappear completely.

Tomorrow’s picture: wagging comet tail



Liberalism is for people who don’t get out among the commoners.

Mega Millions has a bunch of money.

Your government and Pfizer want to release data over 75 years–just like the JFK assassination.  Maybe The Supremes will stop them.


Way out West,  Apple promises to give employees Alpo to eat.

This is why our employees retire when they are 90.  Pigleosi is a C word.


Congress loves monopolies, they give big campaign donations ( bribes ).

Another fake.


What fraud, Joe ?  It’s the tip of the iceberg.

Another fraud is what you are told to eat.


The Western Editor:  What is happening out West, LL ?

The Snow Cat:  More stuff than you can shake a bunch of looters and murder indictments at.  Semi trucks are making progress.

Maybe the Western states can get some H2O relief.  Tahoe gets some global warming, 16 feet of snow.

Alaska is too warm.

This is Los Angeles in the Golden Age.

Native Americans have an enormous population increase.  It is because White people identify as Native Americans–Elizabeth Warren, or Pocahontas as we have come to know her, is a wonderful example.  My new word for 2021 is in this article.  Pretendian–is that a great word or what ?

This is from Washington State, I hope the bill supporters and their families aren’t killed.

They have 2 years of crimes without punishment–the people must want to be stabbed with sharpened sticks.

Biden abandons the fight against COVID just like he abandoned our citizens in Afghanistan.  He might move to San Jose.

Someone finally wrote an important tweet.



More Factual Than Our CDC…LOL
