Description

Sky conditions were significantly better than two weeks ago. Jupiter is now reaching 30 degrees high while it is dark enough to image. It will transit 47 degrees from my location this apparition, about 9 degrees higher than last year.

The North and South Equatorial Belt both appear faded, except for the southern edge of the NEB. The Equatorial Zone is intensely orange. The Great Red Spot is setting on the right.
