ewww...hope this aint a foreshadowing of something bad fixing to happen on that beast.
And then I think...crap, did we cause this? or, did Schumaker-Levy cause this?
hmmm...this really could be an after-effect of the comet impact.
A DISTURBANCE IN JUPITER'S CLOUDS
An unusual disturbance has appeared on Jupiter at the interface of the
South Equatorial Belt (SEB) and the Equatorial Zone (EZ). It's visible as
a very elongated bluish feature, highlighted in the center image above.
The feature's bluish hue is more pronounced when it's near Jupiter's limb
but is quite subtle when crossing the central meridian.
This disturbance was first detected on February 26, 2004, by European
amateurs. On the 29th the new feature was some 40 degrees long (in
longitude) and was transiting Jupiter's central meridian about 2.5 hours
before the Great Red Spot (GRS)....
The atmosphere is very deep, perhaps comprising the whole planet, and is somewhat like the Sun. It is composed mainly of hydrogen and helium, with small amounts of methane, ammonia, water vapor and other compounds. At great depths within Jupiter, the pressure is so great that the hydrogen atoms are broken up and the electrons are freed so that the resulting atoms consist of bare protons. This produces a state in which the hydrogen becomes metallic.
In his 1991 tome Behold a Pale Horse, William Cooper warned that the US government was turning Jupiter into a second sun. Cooper predicted that Galileo, the NASA spacecraft orbiting Jupiter, would create an atomic chain reaction in the giant planet, effectively turning it into a small star. How? In December 1999, Cooper wrote, Galileo was to deliver a 49.7-pound load of plutonium used to power the craft into the heart of Jupiter. The end result would have been a huge atomic reaction, and a newborn star that Cooper has dubbed Lucifer.
But why would the government do this? First, to stave off the coming ice age, and more importantly, to fulfill a Masonic ritual that is the final requirement for founding an Illuminastic New World Order. Apparently, many Illuminati high priests will be at the Great Pyramid of Cheops in Giza to witness this crowning event
The Great Red Spot (GRS) is a persistent storm in Jupiter's atmosphere having lasted, at least, 400 years. Although having been seen from the very early days of the telescope, it was not well studied until 1878. Between the years 1879 and 1882 it dominated the Jovian disc. This was due to it being very conspicuous, its red colour and being dark and large.

Boy, we're all going to have to learn how to sleep with the lights on if Jupiter goes solar..
we'll be gettin' it from all sides!

What are the chances of Jupiter ever becoming a sun it's self? What would have to happen to spark this?
What would be the effects on the earth of this happend, be it possible?
I read this and it's what got me thinking.

Didn't NASA crash a probe/explorer module into Jupiter last year? I remember reading about it on ATS, something about how the illuminati were trying to fulfill a prophecy or something like that.

It could be a dust storm. Jupiter does have the great red spot.

I believe that it's most likely after effects of the Schumaker-Levy comet. I think it takes more than a day or two to get over the hangover of a comet impact.
Yeah, everytime I hear strange stories about Jupitor I think about 2010. Sure, the guy who invented night caps is going to be richer than his wildest dreams if Jupiter goes solar.
I think about Europa, and how in 2010 when Jupiter becomes a Sun the Europa ice melts and it becomes a new Earth. It's a very nice daydream.
