Just to clarify for some readers, as sometimes I see outlandish comments regarding this, I'd like to clear up the consistency of Jupiter.
The outer atmosphere is mostly hydrogen ranging from room temperature because it swirls around the planet at break-neck speed, and some ices (NOT h20,
but NH4, CO2, ammonia, etc), and some Helium. these all are from room temp- -200 Fahrenheit. deeper down, it is mostly denser methane gas, that is so
dense, it is almost liquid, and very sluggish in movement. there is also a large portion of ammonia gas there too. in the center, is hydrogen gas that
is so compressed, it acts almost as a solid, but it is not physically possible to freeze hydrogen. THERE IS NO ROCK CORE. when comets and meteors hit
jupiter, imagine dropping a raisin into a cup of pudding... but having that raisin almost fully disintegrate before hitting the actual pudding.
glad we clarified that.
now, as for something to be coming up from those clouds, "like a submarine in a naval exercise"... that is not possible. I doubt even alien ships
could move through that pudding cup of a planet. what you are seeing is perhaps an upwelling of gas, similar to a CO2 release that Lakes sometimes
have. That is my take on it.
