Tried my hand at sketching Jupiter for the first time last night. I feel like there was more detail than I was able to capture, but at the same time, sketching it caused me to see more detail that I might not have otherwise.

Thanks guys! I got so excited that I could actually see the little white spots in some of the belts (I'm sure there is a term for them but I'm not Jupiter saavy) that I thought it was a perfect time to try a sketch.
