Not the first time - the GRS ws drained of blood for much of the noughties.

When I first saw it in the 70's the GRS was a dark brick orange, but the belts were much paler than they are now. The Voyager photos show similar.

Makes me think the GRS is caused by a surface feature much deeper down that causes an atmospheric whirlpool dragging the darker stuff up from below.
