The Great Red Spot is a storm that rotates around its center (like a hurricane), because it is caught between two bands of winds blowing in opposite directions. 22. The atmosphere of the great giants has such intense pressure that the hydrogen and the helium inside each planet exist mostly in liquid form. 23. Earths clouds are made of liquid water or ice crystals, but Neptunes clouds are made of methane ice crystals. 24. Plutos orbit around the sun is more elliptical than the other planets. For a small part of its orbit, Pluto swings closer to the sun than Neptune. 1. A 2. B 3. B 4. C 5. 6. 7....
