Abstract

INTEREST in Jupiter has been stimulated by recent investigations. A correlation between solar activity likely to affect the ultraviolet radiation in the solar system and the activities of the Jovian great red spot would be of some significance for those interested in the planet. In fact, examination of the sunspot cycle and the relative brightness of the Jovian red spot reveals just such a correlation.
