I was able to see Oval BA, the black spot and the GRS with it's following turbulence. The NTB following the GRS was dark and segmented. The SSTB belt"above" Oval BA was stretching across the globe but was darkest on the preceding side. The EQZ had prominent festoons with them anchoring on the NEBs border. The NTRz had a yellowish beige cast. The NTB was prominent with the NTBn border being darker than the rest of the belt.
In the second sketch on the border of the SPR on the preceding side you'll see a light oval which I believe some are referring to as the Little Red Spot. I researched this a bit and found reference to a LRS+1 on a map by D. Peach from last season. It too is on the SPR border and most likely is the same feature. So it looks like it's been around for a while. It did have a slight pink tone. It was a low contrast object which went in and out of view with the seeing. I hope to see under better conditions as it's transiting the meridian. I did make out some light rifting in the middle of the NEB which is on the following side of the sketch but near the meridian. The SEB was interesting in that the SEBs border was distinctly red. The belt was darker on the north side and tapered away to the preceding side. The NTRz was yellowish beige as it's been this season. Tonight the EQZ appeared slightly yellowish as well, the first time I noticed this. It would be cool if the EQZ exhibited more color. I've read about apparitions with vivid color in the EQZ. One more thing about color of features, the NPR tonight appeared brownish to me whereas the SPR looked grayish.
I hope everyone is enjoying the views of Jupiter. It's great to see it so high above the horizon. Thanks for looking.
Clear and steady skies. Dean
