If you have a telescope it is possible to view the Great Red Spot as it transits across Jupiter. The spot isn't always viewable as it moves around the Planet.
The times below are in UT and show when the spot crosses Jupiter’s central meridian (the line down the centre of the disc from pole to pole).
The spot can be seen for around two hours before, as it approaches the meridian and two hours after. You will need a small telescope to view this, green below shows times it can be viewed.
DONT FORGET THE CLOCKS CHANGE ON THE 25TH MARCH, YOU WILL NEED TO ADD AN HOUR TO THESE TIMES AS THEY ARE IN UT.
