Scientists are perplexed by Strange Polygon-Shaped Cyclones on Jupiter.

Scientists shed new light on Jupiter's north pole storms . Each of these storms is as large as the United States .

By space scientists, Jupiter is one of the most studied planets.Experts have always been intrigued by the activities that occur on the surface of the gas giant, who try to decode those events in order to grasp the planet's atmosphere in order to find signs of life outside of Earth.According to a study in the journal Nature, a team of scientists has shed new light on the strange storms that encircle Jupiter's north pole.According to the journal, each of these storms is as large as the United States.Talking about the stability of these storms, scientists led by Andrew P. Ingersoll of the California Institute of Technology suggested that an anticyclonic shield between the main cyclone and the smaller cyclones is holding the clusters in their unique polygonal patterns.

The polygonal patterns change slowly or not at all, according to the report.The analysis was carried out by the Junos Jovian InfraRed Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) device.Nevertheless, they were unable to obtain conclusions on the previously expected pattern of convection, a spatial relationship between divergence and anticyclonic vorticity, and they decided that more research was needed on Jupiters southern cyclones to reconcile the contradicting results.
