Scientist says Jupiter’s wind jets could present ‘unique meteorological beast’

Jupiter has long been known for the massive storm in its Great Red Spot, but astronomers claim that winds near the gas giant’s poles make that storm look like a stiff breeze, CNET reports. The winds, found in the stratosphere under the bright auroras observed near the poles, have been measured at speeds of 1,450 kilometers per hour. That’s roughly twice as fast as the speeds seen in the Great Red Spot and three times the power of Earth’s strongest tornadoes.
