Three of my best drawings of the 2018 opposition. The Red Spot is very dark and orange-red, and on two dates a dark central bar was seen. The EZ is slightly yellow, particularly in the south, while the twin equatorial bands within that zone are rather orange in tone, as is the NTB. Much activity is seen within the NEB and SEB.
