NASA: Stripe that disappeared on Jupiter coming back

One of Jupiter's stripes that "disappeared" last spring is reappearing – and the disappearance was apparently an illusion created by Jupiter's atmosphere, NASA scientists said.

Scientists noticed earlier this year that the longstanding dark-brown stripe, called the South Equatorial Belt, had turned white, essentially disappearing. Researchers with NASA's Infrared Telescope Facility, the W.M. Keck Observatory and the Gemini

Observatory telescope began studying the phenomenon and found the answer likely lies in a cloud deck made up of white ammonia ice that basically obscured the ring.
"Every few decades or so, the South Equatorial Belt turns completely white for perhaps one to three years, an event that has puzzled scientists for decades," NASA said in a press release.

NASA said that "extreme change" has only been seen on that particular stripe, making it unique for Jupiter and all of our solar system.

Pretty much what was concluded when it happened?

It was not gone, but submerged under the top activity, and likely to resurface.

?

So all is well on the jupe...
