Jupiter Mystery


Recently, astronomers have observed odd changes to Jupiter's appearance, including color changes and other phenomena.  Now, there is a new mystery.  Last month, Jupiter emerged from the glare of the sun for the first time in five months with the stripe that usually rings it's southern hemisphere completely missing.  There are some theories, but astronomers generally remain scratching their heads about Jupiter's latest metamorphosis.
