According to reports on the web the GRS and red spot junior on jupiter are going to very closely pass each other around July 10th give or take a few days, its not know what exactly will happen, will they merge or interact at all,?? who knows.
It makes for a unique visual and photographic opportunity.
Have a look at the following link for some amazing images.

Sky and Telescope have an online featured article about it too. It will be that date +/- a couple of days. I don't think they think the two will merge, but for an astrophotographers prowess, it should prove interesting (especially if time lapsed over a couple of days).
