Video through astronomical telescope Jupiter in February 2015.

This is a video with Jupiter planet filmed through 203 mm astronomical telescope, where I caught the Red Spot towards us for observation.

Images processed Registax 5 of this video, see here.

Red Spot on Jupiter is actually a persistent anti-cylon storm, and scientists believe that it will be there for at least 150 years from now. This spot revolves counterclockwise in about 6 Earth days or 14 jovian days, and has dimensions so large that it can enter 2-3 Earths in it, with a width of between 24000-40000 km from east to west. There are indications that it begins to shrink. Between 1996-2006 the spot lost 15% of its size. Infrared images showed that inside the storm, temperatures are lower.

In the same night, the two Jupiter's moons Io and Ganymede met from our observational perspective.
