Jupiter UTC

CM1: 36.70°

CM2: 272.00°

CM3: 252.30°

CLat: -3.10°

Description

An excellent night for planetary imaging, with the usual caveat of being too breezy for using the CGEM DX/C14.

Notes:

  • The North North Temperate Belt is full of dark clouds, possibly with a small red oval east of the central meridian.
  • The North Temperate Belt has a thin band of dark clouds running through it.
  • The NTB also has faint traces of orange still visible. The entire belt should darken again in a few years if it the normal cycle isn't disrupted.
  • The Equatorial Zone is still orange.
  • The Great Red Spot is rising.
  • The bright clouds that entered the GRS hollow a few days ago have now fully circled the storm.
  • The South Temperate belt has a small white oval near the central meridian.
