Jupiter in good seeing...
      #5522295 - 11/16/12 05:45 AM

Greetings all,

Atatched is a drawing of Jupiter I made last night. Although we were forecast low cloud and fog (which did eventually turn up) it was clear for a short time and the seeing conditions were rather good. Main points were as follows

-The only part of the SSTB visible was a short section just above the two white ovals
-STropB very prominent for a much of this longitude (it does fade again towards the end)
-Some lovely structres present in the SEBz fol the GRS
-EB prominent
-No rifts detectred or suspected in this part of the NEB
-NTropZ bright
-NTB broad with darker sections present along the north and south borders
-NPR may have contained some mottling-like structure.

At 2355UT low cloud and then thick fog descended and observations were stopped.

Best wishes,
-Paul.

Paul, terrific sketch and report. I really like the way you've pulled off the look of the white ovals.

Paul and Christian,

Excellent observations from both of you. Very interesting to see them in sequence and they agree nicely.
