       Jupiter has a striped pattern of clouds, which are white, orange, and brown. The shapes of the clouds include eddy shapes, white ovals, brown ovals, and brown barges.The clouds are formed in stripes and move across the planet. There are three layers of clouds on Jupiter and each cloud has different molecules.One of the levels contains amonia clouds and the other levels has amonia and sulfer clouds.

        Another interesting feature is the Great Red Spot, which is a hurricane that has been active on Jupiter for the last 400 years.
