Okay, now, I am not sure if Jupiter has moved sufficiently since the 5th of January to remove the moon's disc from it's shadow. All I can say is it doesn't look to be so. Io's shadow just seeme dto lack it's full bold black circular characteristics. At times it appeared circular but small, at other times it appeared elongated north to south. And, although I did not see Io explicitly, that I can call definitively, it did appear to barely bulge into the EZ against the white stripe of cloud running along the SEB border. This is what I think I saw, pretty sure of it. Not easy, but if so...it was beautiful.
It's pretty close to being rendered correctly. I never saw any distinct cut into the shadow, just a less distinct shadow with hints of north to south elongation at times. So, I strongly suspect Io was overlapping its own shadow.
The seeing was a pretty steady Ant II without many very calm moments. It was just steady enough that LRS-1 was not seen and some NPR detail was washed out most of the time. I could not see WSZ, but I think I can see where it is. Caught three ovals just for a fleeting moment, and again very fleetingly a couple of times on rare occasions. I am not sure they are placed correctly. They're close I believe. Hard to place them when they roll in and out so quickly.
The SPR was darker than usual.
Festooning was a bit difficult. Although above the GRS wake, the southern EZ was noticeably more shaded. And there may have been an SEB festoon sighting near the preceding limb. Something was there, so I noted it while the memory was fresh and don't remember seeing it again...or at least that way. I had to take the rare calm moments at their word and trust my glimpses.
Oh! Yes, finally some interplay of dark and light borders and streaks along the southern SEB. This is one of those things that is hard to interpret. But, this is also a case of knowing what to look for, and once you see it again it becomes clear what it is. These streaks and dark border segments are so close together as to look almost like they are exactly on the border. There was one really special case just less than half way from the trailing limb where the bright path seemed to shimmy along the edge of the SEB. Other streaks were just inside the darker border segments. Never seen it like this before.
One more thing, my favorite NTB cloud formation near the meridian appears to be closing up. For the longest time it was simply a cut in the broader darker formation. Now it's closed over the top and appears both squashed with a faint hint of being divided, as well.
I spent much time with Io and trying to get the festooning right. I also paid much attention to the cloud formation below and following LRS-2 (the dark streak in the north.)
The NEB had some finger like extensions across the top, two major ones and a series of very faint ones. It had one rift (maybe two but my notes are unclear, so I left it off. Not sure.) There was also a nice notch below one forked festoon and a brighter undefined patch near mid NEB.
Okay, that's the best I got for pretty steady small scale roughness and rare moments of clarity, not really textbook Ant II. So, I drew everything I think I saw and crossing my fingers this one is at least close.
On 8 Jan at 1700UT, System I was 349, and System II was 130. Magnification was 240x with 8mm TMB II.
