Jupiter & Io 8th September new
      #6069435 - 09/08/13 12:36 PM

Greetings all,

Please find attached my first observation of the new Jupiter apparition. In fact, we had spent the whole day traveling back from Berlin, and so I decided to wait up for Jupiter. The planet seems to be fairly similar in appearance to my last observation:
-SPR vague down to the SSTB.
-STB seen along with a STropB.
-SEB was broad with a dark, orange SEBz which contained a number of darker structures.
-EZ was fairly active, a number of dark bluish festoons present along with a number of brighter regions inside some of the areas enclosed by festoons.
-NEB contains a number of darker sections, it's northern boarder is somewhat irregular.
-NTropZ appears white.
-NTB darker along its northern edge
-NTZ fairly bright
-NNTB contained a darker section along its northern boarder.
-NPR Vague.

Io emerged from behind the planet at 0352UT, by 0402UT it was clear of the planet. After Jupiter I made a start on Mars. The disk is still small at 4.1" however I believe a dark streak (which was the Sinus Sabeus feature) was present along with a brilliant white northern cap. I will forward on this observation in due course.

Best wishes,
-Paul

Paul,

A fine, detailed sketch of the King. The NEB looks pretty narrow. I like Io peeking out--nice touch!

Paul, that's not Io, it's not "apparently" elongated.

Excellent sketch. getting me excited about Jupiter's return. So much to observe, it seems.

Hey, check out my avatar. That's Ganymede rising. Cool sight, nice catch.

It is Io, and it did not look elongated.

Sure it is - north and south! Look again.

Id venture a better view would be when it cleared the limb for that elongation effect to become apparent.

Yea, I was teasing Paul on the apparent elongation of Io. And kind of hoping me might confirm it visually some day. It's a great observation.

I am looking forward to this Jupiter apparition. Saturn was rather low down from the UK, but Jupiter and Mars will be riding high this year.

I can I also remind y'all to keep an eye on that aqua Marine Mystery: Uranus!
