I am reletivly familiar with the atmospheric contents of the giant planet, but I remain unclear as to why most of the colors of jupiter are somewhat fleshtoned. Is this a result of a misture of various gases, or perhaps evidence complex chemistry brewing? I know ligtning occurs on Jupiter, so what is the possibility of complex chemical reactions occuring throught the regions of Jupiter that have lightning? If you could provide some examples in equation form that would be great. And lastly, an easy one, why is the 'great spot' storm red?
