That's exactly what I thought, Pete, it just can't be yet there it is. It looks that way. But, yea, images show a tangled web of interaction. The visual interpretation is less detailed, of course. So, that's how it appeared. Hard to see what's really going on when you can capture only the highest contrast detail.

You think the festoons are too blue? Na, I don't mind at all hearing that from an accomplished observer and artist who has challenged me on Plato, 72 Pegasi, etc.

I get a nice blue on some, but less so on others. Other times it's really hard to see where the blue blends in with the ruddy hue of the NEB - and what color that really is. Sometimes it's just dark. Festoons seem to be darker (blue) than a few weeks ago where the blue was more pronounced. The blue does seem a be lighter and more distinct as the festoons jet into the EZ. I try to keep the pallet updated. Take away the bright distinct blue in exchange for a darker, less distinct blue without losing the hue.


In an earlier thread you mentioned the NTZ to be very white. A few weeks ago, I would have a greed with you without thinking twice. Turns out, that's no longer true. I see that zone as distinctly grey and think the STrZ is the most white. Turns out that is no longer true, either. Near the tail end of that distinct sloping belt, the STrZ does appear to grey a little - by maybe one visual notch in hue. It almost blends with the darker grey just south. The difference is very subtle and impossible to define with a single pencil line delineating any sort of border, but the change in hue really is there.

Thank you both, Jim, those brighter arcs strutting north in the SEB were amazing...and a good reason to sketch the view.
