Jupiter - 23rd November 2013
      #6210955 - 11/23/13 09:57 AM Attachment (21 downloads)

Here's a drawing I did at 00:30UT 23rd Nov 2013.

I used a Takahashi FS-128 at x177, seeing was AII/III, temp was -3'C.

The dotted area was a bright white oval. The GRS is much stronger in colour this year.

David, we caught the same details: the white spot and the dark cloud rolling over the GRS. I thought there were two belts in the southern temperate zones. Good catch, wekll done.

Tom, Frank, Norme, Tommy thanks very much for your feedback.

Norme I just checked out your drawing - it's almost identical so just correlation there between observers/instruments.

Clear skies to all.

David,

Nice work. Very interesting that the GRS is darker--that will make a lot of observers happy, especially those with less experience on Jupiter. I've seen that dark area skirting the northern edge of the GRS before in the last apparition--I think it comes and goes.

That dark arc seems more pronounced, as well. Even the brighter cloud streak preceding the GRS is somewhat changed. And the northernmost zones are less distinct over some of the circumference.
