Great sketch dweller. Nice capture of the NEB dark oval and the notch. I also caught the SEB outbreak a couple of nights ago, I could see 3 white ovals involved, each smaller than the preceeding one.

Thanks for all the comments guys. It will be interesting to follow the outbreak as Jupiter moves away.

Dweller,

An excellent observation of Jupiter. Congratulations on being able to view the South Equatorial Belt (SEB) Revival towards the following limb. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Dweller,

Your Jupiter sketch looks great. Now that the weather has gotten colder you are getting some better seeing at the same time the belt is making its re-appearance.

Frank :)

dweller,

Nice drawing of the SEB plume and the NEB activity. Still waiting for a chance to see it myself. Sure glad you and the other sketchers here are able to get your ducks in a row. :cool:
