Jupiter & GRS
      #6168758 - 10/31/13 03:39 PM

Greetings all,

Finally had some clear weather here on the morning of the 30th October and I was able to make an observation of Jupiter. Seeing was average, but there were a number of interesting features on display.
-SSTB seen
-STB quite dark and prominent in some sections.
-GRS certainly seems to be more prominent since I observed it last, the coloration is also more marked.
-The RSH seems to be very well defined; this might well be a contrast effect between the dark SEB which curves under the GRS and the the GRS itself.
-Light region seen in the SEBz just proc. the GRS.

Satellites:
-Io appeared on the Proc. limb at 0038UT.
-Europa was in transit throughout the observation. WINJUPOS showed it to be just fol. the GRS however I was unable to see it.

Also examined the planet with W#25A and W#80A filters. Intensity estimates made in IL as well as Red and blue.

Best wishes,
-Paul

Paul,
Wonderful work. After several observations this year the GRS is showing very well. You captured its contrast very well.
