Jupiter Sketch May 21st
Posted 21 May 2009 - 07:48 PM
I made an observational sketch of Jupiter this morning which is posted here. If you want to see Jupiter, it is fairly high in the SE sky just before dawn. That is often a time of better seeing and worth rolling out of bed for. I used a 2B pencil for the sketch. The template is courtesy of Sol Robbins.
Best to everyone,

What a wonderful sketch of Juptier! I am fortunate as I can see in in the early a.m. if I wake up looking out the top of the bedroom windows which don't have blinds/curtains covering them. What a wonderful tribute to your mother-in-law. My condolences to you and your family.

You did a splendid job on old Jupiter. Much interesting detail included in your sketch. Sorry to hear of your loss.

An excellent observation of Jupiter. You have recorded detal over the major belts as well as the Great Red Spot (GRS). I hope to be able to view Jupiter soon myself. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

A fine drawing and observation of Jupiter.
Here in the UK i'm waiting for Jupiter to appear in the evening skies in the next several months.

Hope to start drawing Jupiter when it gets a bit higher and moves into the evening sky.
