Jupiter’s strips were once portrayed as slightly wavy bands of color with fuzzy edges, so when the first photos showed the intricacy of patterns from turbulence, it was a bit of a shock, but a moment’s reflection showed that it made perfect sense: of course natural processes are quite dynamic, turbulence is turbulence whatever the medium and it looks like turbulence, and so this sort of thing should have been expected by all:


The same sort of thing happens as you read the description of black-hole rain: of course clouds of gasses with varying temperatures and densities will have a dynamic process—i.e., weather, but on a very large scale.
