Under good seeing Marc Delcroix captured this image of Jupiter and and closest satellite Io. Marc notes that the GRS is setting, followed by complex rifts and white spot Z also is setting. On the opposite side in the NEBn there is a conspicious white spot.  The final point to note is that Io was processed separately from Jupiter in the preparation of this image.
