Jupiter in fair to poor seeing; nonetheless, some nice detail within the GRS is visible, particularly within its southern regions; note the tiny white spot within the GRS, south of its major axis, on the fol. end; nice spot activity in S. Temperate Current and development of STB south of and fol. the GRS. Note the many very small ovals and spots in high southern latitudes, constituting a very wide-scale outbreak in recent weeks.

 

The very conspicuous fading of the NTB is particularly noted in this view. This fading was suggested/predicted about 30 days ago as segmented portions began to develop; note also the dark nodules developing and continuing along the span of the NNTB in these longitudes.
