Default Glass: Almost heavenly

These photos are of a decorative glass ball with what appears to be an inner ball floating in a jetstream. The whole thing reminded me of some of the pictures of Jupiter's great red spot.



and a close-up shot:

Nice Selvin. Did you see where an amateur astrologer caught something huge, like a meteor, impacting Jupiter recently?

An interesting object, Selvin. What's the dimension?

Very interesting piece of art glass. Jupiter it is.

The glass object is actually roughly a 3" sphere with a slightly flattened base.
Thanks for your comments.
I did note the pictures of a object striking Jupiter a few days ago. Amazing what you can do with relatively easily available tools.

Very cool shot Selvin! At first I thought it might be a marble until I saw your explanation of it's size, etc.
