How Big is Jupiter's Great Red Spot?

Illustration: Jupiter's Great Red Spot and Earth to scale

Measuring in at 10,159 miles (16,350 kilometers) in width (as of April 3, 2017) Jupiter's Great Red Spot is 1.3 times as wide as Earth. The storm has been monitored since 1830 and has possibly existed for more than 350 years. In modern times, the Great Red Spot has appeared to be shrinking.

The background image was taken on July 10, 2017 as the Juno spacecraft performed its 7th close flyby of Jupiter.
