Answer:  Earth, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune

Voyager 1 and, more recently Cassini, have photographed smaller cloud features on Saturn that are interpreted to be hurricanes. Neptune had the Great Dark Spot, the Little Dark Spot, and the Scooter Spot photographed by Voyager 2 in January of 1986. From Earth orbit, the Hubble Space Telescope has imaged new hurricanes on both Saturn and Neptune. The Earth each year always has its share of hurricanes and typhoons in the Atlantic and Pacific during the summer and fall months.

Saturn's Red Spot
Saturn's Red Spot was more difficult to see than Jupiter's Red Spot because the atmosphere of Saturn is deeper and hazier than Jupiter's atmosphere.


Great Dark Spot
Neptune's Great Dark Spot was seen by Voyager 2 in 1989. Its discovery took NASA scientist by surprise.


Hurricane Odessa
Perfect Storm:  Earth's hurricane season is from June 1 through November 30 of each year. The picture above shows Hurricane Mitch near sunset in 1998.
