The cloud bands of Jupiter stripe the planet with turbulence. Throughout its upper atmosphere, Jupiter shows signs of gravity waves and complicated wave patterns. Near the equator, the cloud bands are driven by planetary winds that reach speeds of 500 kph, whereas near the poles, the clouds show greater evidence of mottling and convection. At present, the reasons for this patterning are undetermined. (Image Credit: NASA; via APOD)
