Markus,

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.

Markus,

Great set of observational sketches. I like your balloon rendering. :cool:

Next time you're out, don't forget to look for Uranus about a half degree to the NNW of Jupiter.

Well done Markus for getting up so early.

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 :-))

Markus,

Great Jupiter, Jupiter and moons and balloon sketches. :bow: :rainbow: :cool:
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.

Frank :)

Hallo Dweller,

Hallo Frank,
