The Big Red Spot (and the Little Red Spot)



The Big Red Spot 

The massive storm on Jupiter

And the Little Red Spot
On the outstretched wing of the telescope,

Earth's heavenly watchman   Hubble, 
(close observer of the Big Red Spot)

Struck by a micro-
meteorite

No larger than a grain of sand 

A singular impact crater
    .

Two red spots in space.
