North North Temperate Zone Little Red Spot


On July 11, the Juno spacecraft once again swung near the turbulent Jovian cloud tops. On its seventh orbital closest approach this perijove passage brought Juno within 3,500 kilometers of the Solar System's largest planetary atmosphere. Near perijove the rotating JunoCam was able to record this stunning, clear view of one of Jupiter's signature vortices. About 8,000 kilometers in diameter, the anticyclonic storm system was spotted in Jupiter's North North Temperate Zone in the 1990s. That makes it about half the size of an older and better known Jovian anticyclone, the Great Red Spot, but only a little smaller than planet Earth. At times taking on reddish hues, the enormous storm system is fondly known as a North North Temperate Zone Little Red Spot.

Long Live The King

The second-longest reigning monarch in the world might possibly be King Taejo of Goguryo. He reined from 53 CE to 146 CE – that’s 93 years!

Unfortunately, the only sources are two Korean histories. They contradict a Chinese history which mentions King Taejo’s reign. Most historical sources will contradict each other, at some point. More importantly, the Korean histories also say King Taejo lived to be 118, which in the first century CE was realistically impossible! So maybe King Taejo was not the second-longest reigning monarch. If we follow the Chinese history, he reigned 68 years. Quite respectable. And that would still put him in the top 30 longest-reining monarchs.
