I made this observation of the King and posted it in the Solar System Observing forum. A report and notes are with the sketch.
I had problems with clouds moving in and obscuring the view so I made the decision to make a quick and dirty field sketch with notes and made the finished sketch from those resources the next morning. I'm glad I did because Jupiter soon disappeared behind clouds.
The sketch was done on copy paper with a 2B and HB pencil and flipped digitally.
Lots of Jupiter sketches posted--plenty to read and catch up on.

Fantastic sketch. You captured much detail, more than I have seen in this go around. You made a wise choice.
Always great to see your work.

On the other hand, you can't sketch at all if you're looking at the bottom of a cloud.
