We used to do a lot of Jupiter observing in those days, not knowing much about the planet, we depended on ALPO Jupiter Recorders, Phil Boudine and Jose Olivarez, to help us out. They would call when something popped up on the planet or we accidentally discovered something.

Don;t know haw many SEB disturbances we discovered but it was a bunch. Those we fun days in the 1970's and 1980's; several of us in south Florida regularly observed together or was on the phone together while at the telescope. Of course, we were younger too :grin:

Jeff,

An excellent set of Jupiter observations showing the development of the South Equatorial Belt Disturbance (SEBD) following the Great Red Spot (GRS). It is interesting to watch the expansion (growth) of the white ovals and dark material from below the jovian atmosphere. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Carlos

Don and I both captured this one nicely on film and when he sent them to Jose he piled all of them in his lot. :confused: So, when you look at the Journal remember that some of his images are actually mine! :bawling:
