Here is an observation from October 8th 2003. There are two spots that show in these images.

There is a second fainter spot showing at about the same longitude but closer to the equator. The sky was foggy with cirrus clouds, transparency was fair 4/10, and seeing was very good, 8/10. No wind and heavy dew. The weather was warm with the temperatures in the 70s F.
