Greetings All!

Here's a drawing of Jupiter made on the 16th September. As you can see there is plenty of fine structure in the NEB. The STB has a fragmented patchy appearance. Still no sign of a SEB revival at the time of observation!

All best wishes,

A beautiful and highly detailed observation of Jupiter. A complex interaction of jovian atmospheric phenomena between the South South Temperate Zone (SSTZ) and the South Temperate Belt (STB), including a prominent white oval. The North Equatorial Belt (NEB) exhibits an impressive bright, elongated rift across it. The blue festoons over the southern border of the NEB are interesting as well. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

I look forward to your future observations.
