Jupiter falls behind the houses by 8 these days, so my sketching time is limited. Seeing was average for the Northeast. Details were fleeting, but seemingly consistent. Getting a case of Jupe-eye from going Popeye on the EP for too long. - j

Jay,

Wonderful capture of Jupiter and Io. The bands really come to life and as always, you've captured the detail wonderfully. Yes, we don't have much longer to be viewing the King until it disappears til next year. There is a GRS around 5:45p.m. Mountain Standard time on Sunday I believe and I am hoping to capture that, weather and conditions permitting.

A most beautiful rendering again of Jupiter. :bow: :bow: :bow:
You've captured the subtle details of the cloud bands well. Did you begin with your usual rough hand sketch?

As Jay in UT mentions, I hope we see clearing by Monday night for the GRS; as the nights of seeing Jupiter are now in short supply. We have constant rain here in Portland for the past three days.

Jay,

An excellent observation of Jupiter and Io. The king of the planets is becoming more difficult to observe as it heads towards the western sky. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
