The giant storm on Jupiter known as Jupiter's Great Red Spot is shrinking, and it might fade into memory within a current lifetime.
Jupiter's super-storm is wider than Earth and has been swirling around since perhaps the 1600s. Earth's longest recorded storm, Hurricane John in 1994, lasted just 31 days.
In the late 1800s, the storm was perhaps as wide as 30 degrees longitude. That works out to more than 35,000 miles — four times the diameter of Earth. When the nuclear-powered spacecraft Voyager 2 flew by Jupiter in 1979, however, the storm had shrunk to a bit more twice the width of our own planet.
Now it's something like 13 degrees wide in longitude and only 1.3 times the size of the Earth.
