Jupiter's Storm Experiment

What is the red spot that we see on Jupiter's surface? It is a powerful storm that seems to be never ending. We used some kitchen supplies to reenact this fenomena.

What we used:
dishwashing soap
food coloring

 Pour milk into the bowl and drop couple drops of 2 different colors of food coloring into it, in the same spot.

Carefully using your hands swirl the milk around.

Then drop one drop of dishwashing liquid right in the middle of the color spot. See the cool reaction.

Swirl the bowl one more time and you have an image of the swirling storm on Jupiter!

The kids didn't stop there - they kept on playing with the food coloring and dishwashing soap effect - they loved that!
