Hi Saturn Observers

Here is an observation from November 30th 2003. Due to clouds only two images were obtained, 07:18 UT and 07:26 UT. The images show several spots, two at Southerly latitudes and perhaps two more on the S. edge of the SEB. The sky was partly cloudy with periods of clear sky. The transparency was very good 8/10, and seeing was variable to 6-8/10. No wind and moderate dew. The temperature was cool in middle 40s F.
