"Astronomers have spotted a strange, obvious and inexplicable black spot near the equator of Jupiter."

Two images over the past week show dark spots on the planet. The second one taken by Erig Ng in Hong Kong is in fact of Ganymede. The first picture is still unexplained.

Its a good week for black spots in the solar system :)

Cheers,
