I was able to get another good observation of Jupiter last evening. The weather called for cloudy skies, but early on it looked pretty good with only a few very thin high clouds. I was able to detect several interesting features listed below. A rather interesting and funny thing happened while observing. I was using my apodizer screen and saw what looked to be a flash and firework type dispersion while observing. I looked up from the eyepiece and saw a plane had flown through my field of view at 240X. I guess we know why they call the adopizer a 60's filter! It was an array of colors with the flashing lights on the plane.
STB - showed greyish and I detected what looked to be two ovals. They were faint but I included them in the sketch. (there may have been more!)
SEB - showed some nice detail across with several shades of brown and beige. The while oval was very apparent before the GRS. The GRS was a lovely red hue and a darker area appeared just to the left and south of the GRS.
NEB - showed several festoons. One looks to jump almost up and down on the EZ. For a few seconds I thought I saw quite a few more but could not be sure.
