Type a description for this product here...The Little Red Spot is #2 in the Under-Appreciated Clouds of Our Solar System series! (see also: Oort and Scooter)
The technical term for the Little Red Spot* is 'OVAL BA' but that's not very glamorous, is it? Astronomers have been watching three white ovals circling Jupiter's southern hemisphere since the 1930s. Only in 2000 did they finally moosh up together--in 2005, OVAL BA's winds strengthened and it turned that nice terra-cotta red that means it's finally really made it as a Jovian atmospheric phenomenon. :D
Our conception of the Little Red Spot is as a bit of a party cloud, seeing as it's just hit the big-time: blood orange and fruit punch spiked with brandy!
(This item is a 5ml bottle.)

*The Little Red Spot is not to be confused with the Baby Red Spot, which the Great Red Spot ate in July 2008. RIP.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I grew up always having "snack time" consist of something crunchy and fruit punch (or milk, but hey.) This just brought me back to when I was little - I only smelled a small touch of brandy. Wasn't expecting to love this one as much as others, but WOW, you girls have done it again!
