Peeking at the sky gave me the impression of having a potentially good imaging session, but a thick deck of clouds began covering the sky just before I started recording with my ASI290MM. To avoid being cut off from capturing a full color image, I quickly ran inside to get my ASI224MC. The sky around Jupiter was nearly opaque by the time I started recording.
- The Great Red Spot is rising.
- Ganymede is about to transit over high northern latitudes.
- Io has just left transiting the planet.
