Greetings all!

A rather brief view of Saturn for me as it was very windy. Some lovely colours present on the disk. It looked to me as though there may have been a view veil structures in the NEBz, the NTB was decidedly thicker and darker in some places.

Best wishes,
-Paul.

Again a very fine Saturn sketch. Looks like the storm is long lasting.

Paul,

Your beautiful Saturn sketches continue and would make a superb animation sequence.

Frank :)
