Subject: Saturn Spots Update


Dear observers,

Enclosed are the identification and drift chart of Saturn's major spots tracked last months from images arrived at IOPW.


A new spot is identified at -51 deg latitude (captured by Ed Grafton). It fits well the Voyager and HST wind profiles at this latitude.

The Spot at -42 deg latitude is still bright.


New spots have been identified at -29 deg (red and green circles). It seems that these latitudes are becoming active in white spot activity. One of these spots survives since HST observations in August.


I'm asking your efforts since HST new observations will be done between 4 and 6 December.
