This image shows one of the long-lived white oval clouds which have resided in the Jovian southern hemisphere for nearly 40 years. This cloud that is at a longitude west of the Great Red Spot. All of the clouds show very similar internal structures. To the east of each of them, recirculating currents are clearly seen. This photo was taken on July 5 by Voyager 2 from a distance of 3.4 million kilometers.
