Near Jupiter I saw something dark in the sky.When I look through my refractor I saw this

An excellent observation of Jupiter and it's satellites and people in a balloon. The North Equatorial Belt (NEB) was prominent and obviously no South Equatorial Belt (SEB). Did the people in the balloon wave back at you? Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Great set of observational sketches. I like your balloon rendering.
Next time you're out, don't forget to look for Uranus about a half degree to the NNW of Jupiter.

Jupiter looks very different to the last time I saw it just a few months ago.
Please keep the great sketches coming - so I can stay in bed :-))

Great Jupiter, Jupiter and moons and balloon sketches.
Jupiter does look much different with the missing belt.
I have now seen enough of these wonderful sketches that I'm going to need to take a first hand look.

go out of your bed you'll have a great look at Jupiter at this time ,I was very happy when I saw this big planet again.
you will enjoy it ,Jupiter is a fun ,the only thing is the early time to get up,I only can do this at weekends.But I was out observing for one hour and than back in bed again.Now the sun comes out very early .

I think B1 would be a good start for a new catalogue,I still work on the ephemerides.
