Last night was one of those rare occasions with almost perfect seeing conditions. Jupiter and the moon made a wondrous sight as they floated across the sky in perfect unison. Despite the moon being close, there was detail and color aplenty to be seen on Jupiter, with image rock steady at 200 x. Just had to sketch....SEB is dark and bifurcated ahead of the GRS, yet indistinct in its wake. The NEB is a glorious amber yellow feathery band with a darker northern edge. Both polar regions showed hints of rolling structures, which I couldn't capture well, so I just admired!

Nights like these we always remember and the sketch keeps the memory and details fresh.
