Jupiter return!
      #5328309 - 07/21/12 01:37 PM

Greetings all!

Well, after months of rain and continual cloud cover, we got a brief 25 min window at 0300UT this morning and I was able to make a drawing of Jupiter. Seeing was only ever average at best, but how nice to be back out again!

The main thing of interest was the NEB and NTB. The NEb seemed to be composed of a series of fine darker sections. The NTB is quite broad now and seems to be of the same orange colour as the NEB. The NTropZ seemed thin with greyish extensions from NEB? It looked like there might have been a veil connecting the two belts at one point but I'm not sure of this.

The NTZ seemed to be quite wide, and of a white colour. Some darker sections present in the NPR. EZ also rather active; a yellowish EB seemed to be present and a number of dark bluish festoons could be made out.

SEB also active, the SEBz was a dark orange colour and seemed to contain some darker sections.

Certainly it looks like this will be another interesting apparition!

Best wishes,
-Paul

I saw Jupiter onyl for a short time during the occultation. But this marked the starting of the new Jupiter season. Nice to see the first sketch here. There seems much to expect.
