Starry Night Little Red Spot Vangogh Jupiter

The Little Red Spot on Planet Jupiter

Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night-vastly smaller than its simalike

The confluence of nature and art in VanGogh's Starry Night and The Little Red Spot:

In a picture beamed to NASA on Earth from the New Horizons spacecraft orbiting Jupiter we see the similarity between VanGogh's masterpiece Starry Night and the Little Red Spot ( a storm the size of planet Earth, situated below the famous Great Red Spot, an even greater storm requiring a celestial teacup) .
