Who Has A Theory For The Missing Jupiter Belt?!?

I was wondering what some of you may think about Jupiter and why it loses its belt on occassions?

certainly mysterious indeed that it would just vanish so soon and so fast considering the size and that it isn't nearly as active in terms of say our sun that shoots off CME's and Pulses.

anyone know or have a theory on why one particular belt disappears and then re-appears some time later?

Weather?

Solar Maximus?

Aliens?.....( :alien: ) ( I am just saying that because I know someone will respond with that.)

One of Jupiter's belts disappears

It seems to be a day for carelessness. First Apple loses another iPhone prototype, and now Jupiter's lost a belt.

One of the first to spot the change was blogger Astrobob.

"That bad boy south equatorial belt (SEB) has completely faded away. Point your scope at the planet any morning soon and you'll see only one obvious dark stripe, the North Equatorial Belt," he says on his blog.

"Jupiter with only one belt is almost like seeing Saturn when its rings are edge-on and invisible for a time - it just doesn't look right."

The belts are composed of ammonia ice, with a little sulfur and phosphorus thrown in. Scientists aren't quite sure how to account for them - one theory is that they are simply gaps in higher, paler clouds that allow the darker, deeper levels to show through.

It's not the first time the belt has disappeared - indeed, it happens every three to fifteen years. it last went missing in the early 1990s, and before that in 1973.

This time, though, the disappearance happened as the planet spent a three-month period behind the sun, so that on its emergence the transformation appears rather more sudden.

Over the next few months, we can expect to see a white spot appear which will gradually get stretched out by the planet's 350mph winds to form a new SEB.

Australian astronomer Anthony Wesley has captured the transformation - check out more of his pictures here.

Perhaps it experienced a polar flip, the big red spot not being affected due to the energy that is concentrated in and around it which keeps it in a stable latitude. Actrually I have no clue and just pull out what ever comes to mind :mrgreen: but it is a great question. :flop: What is your take on it jet?

I've read that cloud turbulence can push material high enough for the rings to form. Taking a look at your first comparison picture, notice that both rings arise from the red bands. In the second picture with only one ring, the red band in the south has dissapeared. I would guess that the red bands are more active and capable of pushing material up.

It's also possible that the rings don't necessarly encircle the whole planet. You can tell by the big spot that those pictures are of two different sides of Jupiter.

Ask him, it´s a Theory as good as any.
Be prepared for a skeptic journey though, he is not any better then anyone else.

Your second image posted show the red spot in the northern hemisphere. Is that correct? :think: or is it due to the location of the satallite?

Wasn't that belt around the equator from a satellite nasa smashed into the surface?A nuclear powered satellite no less.The cassini I think.That was done as a way to try to give us two suns in our solar system.something the neanderthal aristocrats are reminiscent about .
patent pending lol
