Description

Jupiter is 40 arc-seconds in diameter tonight, down from 46 arc-seconds at opposition in June. Despite the smaller apparent diameter, the view remains just as good thanks to cooperative weather.

Notes:

  • A bright oval is rising in the North North Temperate Belt.
  • The northern South Equatorial Belt is light.
  • The Great Red Spot is setting.
  • The dark STB Spectre is sprawling south of the GRS.
