Neptune Storms

Photo: Hurricanes on Neptune
Several storms are at work in Neptune's windy atmosphere in this Voyager 2 image taken in August 1989. The largest is the Great Red Spot. Beneath it is the bright white feature that Voyager scientists nicknamed "Scooter." Another storm, Dark Spot 2, roils at the bottom of this image. Each storm moved eastward at a different velocity.
