Captured four 3 min videos last night before, unusually, the clouds behaved as predicted and closed me down.  Some quite nice turbulence visible but of course the wacky stuff happening around the GRS has been invisible to me for my last three sessions.

Nice image Mark!

 

I'm keen to capture some of that wacky GRS action myself ...   :)

Just noticed the diameter is wrong - it should read 45.30".   These details matter!

Great image!  I had counted on the cloud arriving late once more but as you say this time they were punctual.  Hope they behave more helpfully tonight and this time the GRS action is early in the night... at around 30 degrees altitude at the transit midpoint here.
