Uranus especially continues to surprise - Voyager IIs flyby timing and its camera's filterset certainly misled people about how dynamic its atmosphere can be.
In the continuing absence of the followup probes the two ice giants so badly deserve, I look forward to what the ELTs and next gen adaptive optics will achieve.
GMT arrival = 6 years with any luck.

Actually, considering the large portion of the visible globe of Uranus covered by that seemingly bright cloud (I presume this is a near IR image), has it had any
effect on the planet's magnitude in the visible?
