Okay, what a difference conditions make. Tonight was pure Ant I with scattered low clouds. But seeing was so good, I sketched through them. Walked outside with blank piece of paper and came back in with some of the most amazing detail seen to date. Even my girlfriend didn't believe me, and she's seen Jupiter. I almost don't want to post this one, but it was such a nice view. Anyway, it's time for a break for a day or two. This can wear you out, but I'm so happy I got out tonight.
Some highlights. Again, the trailing EZ seems to have a bluish hue to it. Amazingly, there are some arcing blue features way down by the SEB. Paul captured them in a recent sketch, and yep! They are there! Never seen such a thing.
The NEB is simply a mess with rifts, finger like extensions, and darker shades. The SEB, the same. Man, caught some undulations on the belly of the SEB and a strange bridge like feature near the trailing edge. There seems to be a border trying to from and some lighter areas across the norther edge.
Got a white oval in the south, finally. Not easy, it was just glimpsed a couple times. The north is just beautiful, it's what sparked the sketch a bit earlier than normal - Jupiter on the zenith.
More later, just came in a couple hours ago and wanted to throw this up. It's late her in Asia...real late. I mean, early...I think it looks right. So, good night. (Excuse the dark mask overlay, it's looking kind of rough. Need a new one, maybe reapply it tomorrow.)
