Greetings all,

Please find attached two Jupiter drawings made on 3-4 March. There were some moments of good which afforded some fine views of Jupiter's turbulent clouds. A number of splendid details were visible in the belts and zones, but the most complex as the region in the SEB just fol. the GRS. Although there was more structure visible than I have shown, it was so complex there was no way to record it. The bright region in the SEBz just proc. the GRS is also rather prominent still. The NTZ is rather ill defined at these longitudes.

Best wishes,

Impressive sketches. I've seen the flares in the EQ region, but I haven't seen any blue tones on Jupiter yet.
