Hi all,

The seeing wasn’t bad, but it was behind a very thick haze with passing high clouds. This view shows the GRS with the small, dark red spot following Oval BA on the central meridian. The little red spot appears to be maintaining its donut-hole. No IR this time out. The transparency was too poor to get enough signal.

Beautiful image Wayne! Glad you got a window of some kind even if there were pesky clouds.

Great capture Wayne! Red spot jr jr does seem to have kept its donut-hole. I guess we'll have to see how long it lasts.
