Jupiter’s shrinking Great Red Spot, new dinosaur discovery, California fires, fast-food workers strike and more.
This composite image shows the planet Jupiter and its Great Red Spot in 2014, left; in 1995, top right; 2009, center right; and 2014, bottom right. Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope calculate that the spot, a giant long-lasting storm, is narrowing by about 580 miles a year, much faster than before. In the late 1800s, the red spot was an elongated oval 25,500 miles wide. Now it’s a circle that’s 10,250 miles across. NASA/via AP Buy Photo
