planetary storm systems

when i first looked at the full size version of the above above, i saw two large crazy sky-scraping buildings with a legendary cloud system above them! but then my perspective swapped to the outside looking in...

today APOD shares with us this dizzying image of hurricane ivan from the international space station. this hurricane was largest atlantic hurricane of 2004... the 10th most powerful ever recorded on planet earth!

looks surprisingly different than the giant red spot storm of jupiter.
