Description

After a successful set of images with the 90mm Mak and no signs of clouds, we decided to take out the C14 while there was time. Turns out that was a really good decision since this is our best RGB image the apparition so far. However, it did end up being disturbed by a thin layer of clouds.

Notes:

  • The North North Temperate Belt is showing hints of orange within its otherwise brown clouds.
  • The North Temperate Belt is thin. The southern edge is faintly orange while the north is a thin dark line.
  • There is a white oval on the NEBn at the central meridian.
  • The North Equatorial Belt has a new rift past the CM.
  • The Equatorial Zone, except for the southern edge, is still orange. However, there is a subtle orange smudge at the CM on the EZs.
  • The South Equatorial Belt has a teal spot with a detached tail on its northern edge. I don't recall seeing anything with this color on Jupiter before.
  • The SEBs is dark compared to the rest of the belt.
  • There is a bright spot just off the SEBs on the CM.
  • White Oval BA is rising with the STB Ghost trailing it.
  • There is a subtle blue feature to the west of Oval BA. Is this an STB structured segment?
  • The South Polar Red Spot is setting.
